Your teeth can now heal you!
Did you know that even though it is often necessary to extract them, wisdom teeth and primary teeth can be very valuable to you? Science now teaches us that like the umbilical cord, wisdom teeth and primary teeth contain stem cells that can one day treat you or members of your family.
Your umbilical cord is long gone. The extraction of your wisdom teeth and of your primary teeth is thus a rare opportunity to collect what could one day make a very big difference in your life or in the life of a loved one. Do not miss it! Do not throw away those teeth and call us to make an appointment today.
Wisdom teeth extraction
A lot of people will have to get their wisdom teeth extracted in their lifetime. Numerous reasons explain that phenomenon.
Semi-impacted wisdom teeth (that partially come out of the gum) can cause pain, overlapping teeth, even infection. They can also cause cavities on the neighboring teeth because they are hard to brush.
Impacted wisdom teeth (that are unable to come out of the gum) can cause more serious problems, such as the formation of a cyst. They can also damage the jaw bones or nerves and have long-term repercussions on your health and your oral comfort.
What is the procedure?
During the extraction of your wisdom teeth or of your primary teeth, we can collect the stem cells they contain and deposit them in a human tissue bank. Some teeth can sometimes allow us to collect up to 2 million stem cells.
The perspective of saving them to cure diseases like cancer, Alzheimer’s or multiple sclerosis one day is revolutionary and it is of great value to our patients.
