Harvesting stem cells from impacted third molars

Procedure Details

This young man in his late teens has decided to bank his stem cells for possible use in the future in case of any potential systemic illness. After doing some online research he learned that viable stem cells can be easily retrieved from impacted third molars. Coincidentally his dentist has advised to seek an oral surgery consultation for removal of his wisdom teeth due to insufficient jaw space, poor eruption prognosis and encroachment onto second molars. Without hesitation he scheduled a visit and all four of his impacted wisdom teeth were removed surgically and submitted intact for banking.
