Most families are unaware of these important cells that would normally be discarded.
Littleton, MA (PRWEB) July 29, 2015
Nearly everyone has heard of the potential of stem cells to treat a wide range of serious diseases. Yet few people realize that a rich source of these cells is teeth—baby teeth that come loose during childhood, wisdom teeth extracted from teens or young adults, and teeth that need to be pulled to make room for braces. These potent stem cells exist in the dental pulp of healthy teeth, and as long as they are collected, transported, processed and stored properly, they can be preserved to protect a family’s future health.
Provia Laboratories offers a service to do just that and it is called Store-A-Tooth. The Littleton, MA based company manages an FDA Registered, GMP tissue bank preserving stem cells for thousands of families. Only recently has Store-A-Tooth been introduced in the Greater Chicagoland area – part of a national expansion of Provia’s widely popular Store-A-Tooth service.
Advanced Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery in Elmhurst, IL offers a full scope of oral and maxillofacial surgery services including IV anesthesia, dental implants, and dental extractions – including wisdom teeth. They pride themselves on offering kind, compassionate care in a comfortable setting. “AOMS is a perfect partner to work with. They are committed to high quality care and ensuring their patients are well informed of the latest technologies and options,” says Howard Greenman, Chief Executive Officer of Provia Laboratories. He continues, “Most families are unaware of these important cells that would normally be discarded. The Oral Surgery community plays a vital role in helping families make informed decisions before it is too late.”
Advanced Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery will participate in the Store-A-Tooth program by making information about the service available to their patients. Store-A-Tooth is an affordable option for families seeking to make their children’s stem cells available for them in the future.
