New Bone Regeneration Materials Make Jawbone Grafting Easier, Less Invasive
POSTED ON WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 26, 2011 AT 9:33 AM by Dr. Mark Stein
If you have defects or deficiencies in your jawbone caused by trauma, infection, gum disease, surgery, or congenital defects, you may benefit from bone grafting. Dr. Mark Stein, a leading New York oral and maxillofacial surgeon, uses the most advanced bone grafting techniques available to date in order to provide his patients with the best, most predictable bone grafting results. Dr. Stein’s techniques promote bone growth and create a strong foundation for future dental restorations, including dental implants.
Dr. Stein is one of the first doctors in the country to use INFUSE® Bone Graft in oral surgery procedures as an alternative to allografts or autografts. INFUSE® Bone Graft is an FDA approved manufactured bone grafting material that contains a manufactured version of recombinant human bone morphogenetic protein 2 (rhBMP-2), a protein normally found in the body. The role of rhBMP-2 is to help stimulate the production of bone. Unlike using bone grafts taken from other parts of the patient’s body, INFUSE® Bone Graft eliminates the need for a bone harvesting procedure and therefore spares defects to the hip, leg, rib, chin, or jaw. While rhBMP-2 promotes better bone growth at the implant site, it also encourages improved healing.
INFUSE® Bone Graft can also be used in sinus augmentation and ridge expansion. A sinus lift procedure is a special type of bone grafting procedure necessary when bone loss has occurred between the upper jaw and the sinuses. A ridge expansion is performed when the jaw is not wide enough to support the placement of dental implants.
