Wisdom teeth can help to treat blindness

Stem cells from wisdom teeth can be redirected to become corneal cells, and advance that could be used to repair scars eyesA study by the School of Medicine, University of Pittsburgh (USA) suggests that stem cells from dental pulp could be used to treat corneal scars, helping the treatment of corneal blindness. The experiments showed that stem cells from wisdom teeth could have the same embryonic origin as the cornea.

Corneal blindness affects millions of people. One treatment is corneal transplant, but there are few donors and often rejection of the donor tissue occurs, causing a total loss of vision.

Precisely in Pardiñas Clinic we offer the service of extraction of stem cells from dental pulp through Criodental Biopharma, so we encourage you to contact us anyone who is interested in this procedure.
