Englewood, Colo., Sept. 7, 2010 - Denver dentists help harvest stem cells in teeth.
Denver dentists Dr. James DeLapp, Dr. H. Candace DeLapp, and Dr. Sarah Parsons are partnering with StemSave to offer their Denver-area dental patients a chance to bank valuable stem cells for use in future “Regenerative Medical Therapies.” The National Institutes of Health’s recent discovery that powerful stem cells exist in teeth give Denver-area dental patients an easy way that “may” protect their future health and participate in cutting edge regenerative medicine.
Regenerative Medicine treatment has been reported to be the future of medicine.
Stem cells found in teeth are extracted by Denver dentists and then these stem cells are cryopreserved. The recent discovery that stem cells exist in teeth has the potential to transform dentistry and the future of medical treatments. Stem cells are the basis for the emerging field of regenerative medicine. There are more than 78 clinical trials involving stem cell treatments underway and the military is developing stem cell therapies to treat soldiers wounded in action. The current research being conducted suggests that stem cell therapies may, in the future, be able to treat many of today’s most difficult diseases, such as diabetes, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, muscular dystrophy, cancer and many more.
