Scottsdale Dentists at Scottsdale Center for Dental Medicine Offering Dental Stem Cell Banking
PR Log - Dec 20, 2011 - Dental stem cells have arrived in Arizona. The Scottsdale Center For Dental Medicine now offers the opportunity for patients to store, or “bank”, their dental stem cells for use in future procedures with its Scottsdale dentists. The state-of-the-art technology permits the storage of the cells to grow additional tissue for future use in a broad array both medical and dental areas.
This cutting edge technology was first discovered at the National Institute of Health in 2001, while researching stem cells from bone marrow. Over the past decade, scientists and doctors have looked at many uses for dental stem cells. This has include repairing or regenerating bone, organs, skin, and most recently - teeth. It is now possible for a Scottsdale Dentist to harvest your dental stem cells to take advantage of these future possibilities.
Mesenchymal stems cells have the possibility for being used in treating such life altering debilitating conditions as muscular dystrophy, stroke and myocardial infarction (heart attack), arthritis, corneal damage type 1 diabetes, spinal cord injury, and assisting with neurological diseases like Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s. The possibilities are phenomenal, and banking stem cells now may allow patients to participate in the usage later.
Stem cells help the body repair, regenerate, and renew itself. For quite a while, physicians have been utilizing noncontroversial umbilical cord blood or adult bone marrow stem cells to treat diseases such as leukemia. Over half a million families have privately stored their babies’ umbilical cord blood for its possible future medical uses.
Dental stem cells are convenient, easy, and affordable to harvest for collection, since they are available from any healthy tooth. Every person loses twenty baby teeth from age seven to twelve. Then many have teeth pulled prior to braces being placed.
Also, if you are going to have your wisdom teeth extracted by a dentist in Scottsdale, stem cells can be banked from this procedure. All of these teeth have dental stems cells that can be banked. Rather than getting rid of these tooth or saving your child’s baby teeth for the ‘Tooth Fairy’, The Scottsdale Center For Dental Medicine urges people to think about having them taken out as soon as they become loose and prior to falling out.
Preserving stem cells for your child’s health holds the promise for a broad array of very important uses in the future. Banking dental stem cells now may provide protection for your child’s health for the future.
