What is the right age to collect wisdom teeth to extract stem cells?

In case of wisdom tooth, the rule is the sooner, the better. As age progresses, it has been observed that there is a loss of viable stem cells in tooth, hence to avoid that it is better to get your wisdom tooth extracted sooner and stored. Viable stem cells have been found in healthy wisdom teeth of individuals aged 30 or more.

When are wisdom teeth collected for stem cell extraction?

Only healthy wisdom teeth are collected for preservation.

Often they are also taken out for orthodontic procedures.
