Stem Cell Therapy Helps Builds New Tissue for More Rapid, Less Complicated Complete Recovery After Oral Surgery
The treatment possibilities with stem cells are significant, and more applications for these are currently being researched. Our practice is on the leading edge of stem cell treatment for oral surgery and bone grafting. Below you will find more information about Stem Cells, their potential use and how we use them in our office.

What is Stem Cell Therapy IN ORAL SURGERY?
Stem Cell Therapy is also called “regenerative therapy,” because it uses the body’s most basic “raw material,” stem cells, to grow or regenerate new cells that the body needs. Stem cells are “undifferentiated” or “unspecialized” cells, meaning that they are “blanks” that can be developed into another type of cell that is required to repair or replace damaged tissue or aid in grafted tissue integration. In the musculoskeletal field, stem cell therapy can stimulate the formation of new bone, cartilage, tendon, ligaments, fat, and fibrous connective tissue. In oral surgery stems cells can have a great impact on the regenerative and healing ability of the body to integrate grafted bone and soft tissue into the body. In other words, stem cells boost the recuperative powers of the body and improve the outcome of complex oral surgery procedures.
What are the benefits of Stem Cell Therapy?
Patients that have undergone multiple procedures have reported less swelling and post-operative discomfort with the use of stem cells. Clinically the soft and hard tissues seem to heal better and faster with the use of this technology.
WHAT CAN STEM Cell THERAPY DO?
Stem cell treatments can help regenerate tissue that has been grafted (ex.: bone grafts on the jaws or sinuses). Stem cell treatment can also enhance the healing and decrease post-surgical pain, swelling, and healing time.
