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!

Considering dental implants to replace missing teeth? While many patients have ample bone and space to undergo their dental implant procedure smoothly, some may require additional procedures in order to ensure proper placement. When there isn’t enough bone height in the upper jaw or if the sinuses are too close, a dental implant will require a sinus lift to ensure adequate bone for placement of the implant. For those who have enlarged sinuses or less jawbone density, Dr. Stein offers sinus grafting to lift the sinuses and add a bone graft—allowing for dental implants to be properly inserted.
Your Sinus Graft Procedure
Dr. Stein uses the latest dental technology to lift the sinus membrane away from the jawbone. By doing so, ample space is created above the jaw for bone grafting to support your dental implant. The materials for your bone graft can come from a variety of sources. Dr. Stein has developed a very successful bone graft combination in his many years of practice. In some cases, synthetic materials, such as xenograft and/or INFUSE® bone grafting material, can be used to encourage bone growth. Once your graft is placed, the bone requires a period of about 4-6 months to heal and integrate with the jaw. Dr. Stein has developed a minimally invasive technique to add bone around the sinus area, often avoiding the need for “conventional“ sinus elevation procedures.
After your healing period ends, Dr. Stein is ready to place your dental implants. Implants are inserted into the jawbone and bond over time. These implants look and feel like your natural teeth—allowing you to eat virtually any food!
Sinus grafting can help those with enlarged sinuses or low jawbone density. Patients who have lost bone due to factors like gum disease and tooth loss can lift the sinus to create additional room.
Mark Stein, D.D.S., M.D. and his staff encourage patients to express any questions or concerns you may have about sinus grafting, bone grafting, dental implants, or any of our other procedures. You can contact us at our New York office at 212.888.4760, or you may make an appointment online for a personal consultation with Dr. Stein.

Bone grafting can help treat various dental health problems, such as providing strength, stability, and density to anchor implants and replace bone mass, no matter the cause. For example, many patients who have lost teeth and need dental implants undergo bone grafting to ensure that their bone is strong enough to support new teeth. In addition, patients with jawbone deficiencies lose bone mass over time and look to bone grafting as a way to replace this missing mass. Some patients suffer trauma to the jaw, as well as infection and disease—both of which can adversely affect bone structure—requiring new bone to fill voids left by these unforeseen circumstances.
Here at New York Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, we specialize in different bone grafting methods to strengthen your jawline. One such method is the advanced bone grafting material known as INFUSE®.
INFUSE® is a special protein that stimulates your own body to make bone tissue! This protein is often used for bone grafting in large areas—usually spanning 2 or more teeth. First, our New York oral surgeon will combine a synthetically-made bone with cadaver tissue to create a special bone graft. This graft will then be added to the INFUSE® protein to create a completely unique piece of bone.
When grafted to your jaw, INFUSE® will stimulate your bone to create tissue, so you can naturally grow bone mass and increase bone density! INFUSE® results are extremely successful, with over 70 cases performed to satisfaction. Dr. Stein is one of the first oral surgeons in the country to use this innovative bone grafting method!
Mark Stein, D.D.S., M.D. and his staff encourage patients to express any questions or concerns you may have about bone grafting or INFUSE®, as well as any of our other procedures. You can contact us at our New York office at 212.888.4760, or you may make an appointment online for a personal consultation with Dr. Stein.

Dr. Stein will inject Restylane® beneath the skin at the site of wrinkles or facial folds, smoothing your skin from the inside out. Restylane® is the perfect quick fix for anyone interested in looking younger without enduring the downtime or risks of traditional cosmetic surgery options, like a facelift or lower eyelid surgery.
