In the years ahead, your Patients will likely ask you about
dental stem cells as more and more research progress is publicly
announced. You can direct your patients to StemSave’s brochure and our
web site with full confidence they will find the information
helpful as they consider using StemSave to protect their family’s
StemSave was designed in collaboration with Dentists to provide
you with a practice-enhancing capability that gives your Patients
the opportunity to collect their stem cells. StemSave
understands the unique relationship that a Dentist has with their
encourages you to direct your Patients to our informative website
answer any questions they may have on the science of stem cells
or the StemSave system in general.
We respect your time, as well as your desire to provide your
Patients with the highest level of care when opportunities
to save their stem cells present themselves. Use www.StemSave.com as
your resource tool for topics and discussions related to the
current research and therapies involving stem cells. StemSave
provides you with everything you need, from the science of stem
cells to StemSave's convenient recovery and cryopreservation
process for your Patients' stem cells.
We recommend that you recover only healthy stem cells in a timely
fashion. You can explain to your Patients that the stem
cells are located within the pulp of the tooth and that those
being recovered need to be viable. In order for these
cells to be viable, they must have an intact blood supply prior
You can simply explain to your Patients that a deciduous tooth
that fell out on its own, or one that is "hanging on by
a thread" is not a good source for viable stem cells. Good
sources of stem cells are any non-infected teeth with viable
pulp cells. At the time of recovery, visually inspect the
exposed pulp to confirm that it is a healthy color -- StemSave
takes care of the rest.
Remember that not all deciduous teeth resorb in the same fashion
or at the same rate. Some deciduous teeth may contain more pupal
tissue than others. When the tooth arrives at our processing
facility, we will assess the viability of the cells to determine
if this tissue is a candidate for cryopreservation.
We also want your Patients to know that we are your partner.
If for some reason the cells recovered are not viable, we will
credit your patient’s StemSave account. We explain
to you and your Patient the possible reasons that the cells were
not viable and encourage you to pursue collection again at the
next available opportunity, at no additional cost.
When talking with your Patients, make them aware that they have
the opportunity to collect their own stem cells during many planned
dental procedures. Loose deciduous teeth, impacted third
molars, and teeth recommended for extraction for orthodontic
indications, are all ideal potential candidates for stem cell
