About Bone Marrow Cell Recovery

At Millennium Surgical, we offer regenerative cell recovery services for children and adults utilizing the bone marrow of harvested teeth. Our board-certified oral and maxillofacial surgeon, Dr. Bartlomiej Nierzwicki, believes in the power of this service and is pleased to offer it to all of his patients. The National Institutes of Health and the Department of Health and Human Services want to improve the quality of life with recovered bone marrow cells. When a patient has a tooth or teeth extracted, the concentrated cells inside each tooth can be preserved for future use, if needed.

These harvested cells can be used to regenerate tissue, muscles, neurons, bone, organs, beta cells for insulin production, skin cells, cartilage, and more through this advancement of science and medicine. What an amazing option to have in saving your own life without needing a donor and with no chance of organ or tissue rejection. So many people have had transplants where their body would not accept the tissue and had to be put on immunosuppressant drugs for the rest of their life. With bone marrow cell regeneration, that is a step you won’t have to go through. If you would like to know more about how to preserve your harvested cells, call our office today.

Reasons for Bone Marrow Cell Recovery

We can use recovered bone marrow cells to create living tissue to replace or repair damaged tissues and organs. As we age, we encounter different illnesses and diseases or have birth defects, and these harvested cells can regenerate what is needed to fix the problem. You could actually heal yourself with your own bone marrow cells by allowing scientists to grow what is needed. This is not a distant technology in a movie, and scientists are regrowing organs and tissues today with preserved cells to save and better people's lives.

How It Works

To start saving your bone marrow cells, you must first register at, and they will send your dentist or surgeon a special transportation kit before your tooth extraction procedure. Our staff will seal the tooth or teeth into the kit, and send it to the StemSave laboratory. The teeth will then be tested and processed to make sure the harvested cells are usable. Once they are verified as viable cells, the lab will preserve them with cryopreservation so they can be used in the future when needed.

Other Considerations

The younger the harvested cells are in the tooth, the better chance they have for viable use. Why? These cells age just as we do, and they are purest when we are younger. Bone marrow cells in baby teeth are the best, but wisdom teeth from teens and young adults can be just as vital to future regenerative medical therapies. If it is possible, whenever a tooth is extracted, you should have the cells preserved.
