Dental implants are greatly adding to patients’ quality of life and changing the way people live daily. They are designed to provide a foundation for the replacement of natural teeth that have been prematurely lost and to look, feel, and function like natural teeth.

The average mouth is made to hold only 28 teeth. It can be painful when 32 teeth try to fit in a mouth that holds only 28 teeth. These four other teeth are your Third Molars, also known as “wisdom teeth.”

Dental Stem Cell Preservation
Dr. Gary Orentlicher speaks to reporters about the tooth stem cell preservation options that we offer at New York Oral, Maxillofacial, and Implant Surgery.
Although the future potential uses of stem cells are not fully understood at this time, much research is underway. Many families are now choosing to preserve the valuable stem cells found in non-decayed, extracted, erupted teeth and wisdom teeth for use in potential future regenerative treatments (Type 1 Diabetes, spinal cord injury, heart disease, Alzheimer’s, etc.). Similar to the banking of umbilical cord blood during childbirth, this is an opportunity to bank stem cells for later potential use. If interested, we would be happy to discuss the simple process with you.
