Nu Image Partners with StemSave™ to Help Patients Bank Their Stem Cells for Future Use

An abundance of valuable stem cells are found in baby teeth, wisdom teeth and permanent teeth. Stem cell banking is a unique stem cell recovery and cryopreservation service that allows participants to use their stem cells in the event of future injury or disease. 

Since this process is time-sensitive, Nu Image surgeons and team members are properly trained to retrieve viable teeth and ship them directly to StemSave. There, the stem cells are extracted from the teeth and cryogenically preserved for future use.

Properties of Stem Cells
Stem cells are unique because they drive the natural healing process by regenerating and producing specialized cell types. As a result, a wide range of diseases and conditions –  once thought to be impossible to cure – are now being treated with the use of stem cells. Some of these conditions include:

  • Arthritis
  • Brain Injuries
  • Crohn’s Disease
  • Diabetes
  • Heart Disease
  • Leukemia
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Muscular Dystrophy
  • Parkinson’s Disease

Stem Cells in Teeth
Vector illustration of white toothWhile stem cells can be found in most tissues of the body, they are usually buried deep, few in number and similar in appearance to surrounding cells. With the discovery of stem cells in teeth, an accessible and available source of stem cells has been identified. 

The stem cells contained within teeth are capable of replicating themselves and can be readily recovered at the time of a planned dental procedure. To date, 6000+ clinical trials have been conducted & over 70 clinical applications using Adult Stem Cells have been approved.
