Dental stem cell therapy saves stem cells from baby teeth, teeth removed for orthodontic reasons and wisdom teeth to help with future infections, injuries or diseases.
Dr. Jue works with Store-A-Tooth, which provides a Tooth Transport Kit, collects and validates the stems cells that are collected from the tooth. The cells are kept frozen until the day they are needed, at which time they are sent to the patient’s healthcare provider.
Dental stem cells have been used to treat periodontal disease, diabetes, spinal cord injury, stroke and liver disease. Stem cells are different from other cells because they can transform into many different cell types and divide more than other types of cells.
Dental stem cells are particularly effective because they replicate faster than stem cells take from other body tissues.
The initial cost of the Store-A-Tooth service is one-third to one-half the initial cost of storing umbilical cord blood, another source of stem cells.
A Beautiful Smile at Lake Pointe is the dental practice of Dr. Lance Jue. It has served the Houston area's restorative, cosmetic and general dentistry needs for 19 years. Dr. Jue makes an effort to listen to every patient to give him or her the appropriate treatment.
