Stem Cell Recovery


An smiling mouth of a woman after her treatment at Edward I. Jutkowitz, D.M.D., P.C. - Periodontics and Implantology. We live in a time where technological developments are being made all of the time. These developments are aimed at helping to improve the quality of medical and dental treatments you are provided with, the outcomes of procedures, and your overall quality of life. One of the most interesting developments with incredible promise is the use of stem cells harvested from your own body to regenerate tissue, organs, and even teeth. At Edward I. Jutkowitz, D.M.D., P.C. - Periodontics and Implantology, we can preserve stem cells from teeth with stem cell recovery.

What Are Stem Cells?


Stem cells are unique cells found in your body. These cells can regenerate, and they help to drive the natural healing process in your body. They aid in the restoration of skin, muscles, cartilage, nerves, and bone. Stem cells are plastic, which means that they can differentiate into different types of tissues. As a result, this means they may be able to be used to treat a wide array of different diseases and injuries.

Stem cells are few in number, and they are found deep within your body. They have, however, been discovered in the pulp of your teeth. This location provides a more accessible and available source. An abundance of stem cells can be found in baby teeth, wisdom teeth, and your permanent teeth. Because of their accessibility, they can easily be recovered during planned dental procedures such as tooth extractions.

Why Recover Stem Cells?


There are many reasons to recover stem cells from your teeth:
•  The stem cells are plastic. They can differentiate into different types of tissues, making them incredibly versatile.
•  There is virtually no risk of rejection. Recovering your stem cells allows them to be saved for you. Because they are your cells, they will not be rejected by your body. This also means that there is less chance you will need to take medications to reduce the risk of rejection.
•  Recovering stem cells is easy and convenient. We can recover stem cells during planned dental procedures.
•  Stem cells can replicate faster and longer than other cells in your body. They have also shown great promise for regenerative treatments such as those for neurodegenerative diseases, heart disease, bone disease, and more.
•  There is no controversy. The stem cells recovered from your teeth are adult stem cells. They do not carry the controversy associated with embryonic stem cell usage.

How Many Teeth Should Be Saved?


You can save as many teeth as you want for stem cell recovery. Different types of diseases, and the severity of these diseases require different amounts of stem cells. The more teeth that are saved means there is a greater chance that you have sufficient stem cells to treat different types of issues.

Am I a Candidate for Stem Cell Recovery?


Just about anyone is a candidate for stem cell recovery. So long as the pulp in the extracted tooth is healthy, it can be saved. Any type of tooth can be saved, whether it is a baby tooth, a wisdom tooth, or any other adult tooth. Age does not matter either. All healthy teeth contain stem cells—however, the younger the teeth, the younger the stem cells. Younger stem cells have greater regenerative potential.

With stem cell recovery, we can preserve stem cells from baby teeth and extracted teeth. Call Edward I. Jutkowitz, D.M.D., P.C. - Periodontics and Implantology today at (516) 740-1848 to learn more.
