About Stem Cell Recovery

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

Stem 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 stem 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 stem cells, call our office today.

Reasons for Stem Cell Recovery

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

How It Works

To start saving your stem cells, you must first register at www.StemSave.com, 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 stem cells are usable. Once they are verified as viable stem cells, the lab will preserve them with cryopreservation so they can be used in the future when needed.

Other Considerations

The younger the stem cells are in the tooth, the better chance they have for viable stem cell use. Why? Stem cells age just as we do, and they are purest when we are younger. Stem 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 stem cells preserved.

Save Your Stem Cells

Saving your own or your child’s stem cells can improve quality of life in the future by curing illness, injuries, and disease with your own regenerated tissue. Instead of relying on organ donors, synthetic materials, or prosthetics, you can potentially cure yourself with this one preserved element.
