Bone Grafting Options for Areas of Missing Teeth!
POSTED ON TUESDAY, AUGUST 04, 2015 AT 1:56 PM by Dr. Mark Stein
Getting a tooth removed can be a concerning thought for many. When preparing for a tooth extraction, you may not be focused on anything but the procedure itself; this is certainly an understandable feeling. However, it is beneficial to also think about the future when removing a tooth.
After undergoing a tooth extraction, it is imperative that you fill the area of the missing tooth with a dental implant. If not, surrounding teeth may collapse inward—affecting tooth function and possibly altering your facial profile. Many patients, though, do not undergo a bone graft or bone maintenance after tooth extractions. As a result, bone loss begins to occur in the area where your tooth used to be. At New York Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, Dr. Stein offers a breakthrough bone grafting method to encourage bone growth and formation in areas that are missing teeth in preparation for dental implants.
INFUSE® Bone Graft is the newest way to stimulate bone regeneration! INFUSE® is made from a special bone morphogenic protein that is found naturally in the body and promotes bone growth. Additionally, the type of bone being created as a result of INFUSE® BMP is natural bone—the same that is found throughout the body.
INFUSE® is different from other bone grafting methods in that it uses neither cadaver bone nor bone from other parts of your body—two techniques that may result in several bone grafting attempts to achieve the desired outcome. INFUSE® BMP can deliver precise and natural results, so you can grow a strong foundation for the future placement of dental implants.
Mark Stein, D.D.S., M.D. and his staff encourage patients to express any questions or concerns you may have about INFUSE® BMP, bone grafting, dental implants, or any of our other procedures!
