Hi..stem cells are commonly extracted and preserved from placenta after delivery. However now in dentistry also in has huge scope. Stem cells are either extracted from milk tooth or wisdom tooth. But, tooth should be healthy, free of cavity and infection. Stem cells from tooth are usually preserved for 15-20 years. There are different companies for this in India. Costs usually 60k- 1lac based on company. More Information available about this online. Regards
