Advances in Bone Grafting: Using INFUSE®!

POSTED ON TUESDAY, MAY 19, 2015 AT 3:31 PM  by Dr. Mark 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.
