StemSave™ (Dental Stem Cell Banking) in West Palm Beach, FL
StemSave™ is an innovative program that preserves your valuable stem cells should you need them in the future. South Florida Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery offers StemSave™ enrollment to our patients in Jupiter, West Palm Beach, Palm Beach Gardens and other nearby areas in Florida.
What is StemSave™?
StemSave™ is an innovative program that allows you to bank stem cells that are harvested as part of your dental care, such as when you have a tooth extracted. Saving your stem cells for the future is an opportunity to enhance future treatments for diseases and injuries and enhance outcomes. Stem cells are one of the latest advances in the medical field. These amazing cells transform into various types of cells, such as those that make up your muscles, nerves, ligaments, cartilage and blood vessels. The cells promote healing and often provide more advanced results than the healing process without stem cells.
Benefits of Stem Cells and StemSave™
Saving your stem cells through the StemSave™ program means that you have a reserve of these cells for treating:
- Multiple sclerosis
- Heart disease
- Parkinson’s Disease
- Injuries to the brain
- Periodontal Disease
- Aging and cosmetic concerns
- Sorts-related injuries
- Crohn’s Disease
- Trauma-related injuries
No additional procedure is needed. We simply send your tooth to StemSave™ for processing and storage.
What is the Procedure for StemSave™?
Your teeth naturally have stem cells, so the cells can be harvested from baby teeth, as well as permanent and wisdom teeth that are extracted as part of your oral surgery. Once you enroll in the program, we follow a precise protocol to transport the tooth to StemSave™ where the stem cells are removed and preserved via cryogenics for future use.
Preparing for StemSave™
No special preparation is needed. You only need to enroll in the StemSave™ program. Our staff can help you with the enrollment process.
After Your StemSave™ Treatment
Having your stem cells preserved by StemSave™ does not require any additional steps during your treatment. Recovery is based only on the procedure that is being performed.
How Much Does StemSave™ Cost in Jupiter?
Your dental insurance may cover the cost of StemSave™. Our benefits coordinator will serve as a liaison between you and your insurance company to determine what if any benefits are available, as well as what your copay and deductible amounts are. Once we have determined your out-of-pocket costs, we will then discuss our many payment options, which include cash, personal check, and major credit cards.
Many of our patients are also able to afford treatment by applying for CareCredit® financing. CareCredit® is a credit card that can be used at leading healthcare providers such as dentists, optometrists, and general practitioners. This makes it a great option if you are considering treatment from more than one provider. Even those with less-than-perfect credit scores are often approved for CareCredit® and can obtain payment plans they can easily fit into their monthly budget.
What to Expect During Your Consultation
Your consultation appointment is an opportunity for you to meet your surgeon and collaborate on a treatment plan. We will perform a complete oral examination and review any records from your family dentist. If you need oral surgery, you will need to sign consent forms. We will also provide instructions that need to be followed in the days before your procedure.
Stem cells are one of the most powerful resources for fighting diseases and recovery from traumatic injuries. Now you can have the stem cells removed from your extracted teeth and preserved by StemSave™.
