The Placenta

What is the Placenta?

The placenta is an organ that connects the baby to the uterus via the umbilical cord.  It is a source of transportation; delivering vital nutrients and extracting waste products through the mother’s blood.  In addition to transportation, the placenta produces hormones sEng, sFlt-1 and PlGF that are essential to the healthy development of the baby.  These hormones protect the baby from infections and sickness throughout pregnancy. 

What miracle is inside the Placenta?

The stem cells being used is called bioXclude (produced from Snoasis Medical).  It is amnion chorion tissue which can drastically speed up the healing processes in dental wounds. It provides unique physical and biological growth factors and a barrier membrane.

Placental stem cells can differentiate not only into red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets, but also into many other types of tissue. Placental stem cells have the benefits of embryonic stem cells, but without the controversy or medical drawbacks.
