Regenerating the Field of Dental Implants with Recombinant Human Bone Morphogenic Protein

POSTED ON TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 14, 2012 AT 6:03 PM  by Dr. Mark Stein

Mark Stein, D.D.S., M.D. of New York Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Dental Implant Center was recently published in New York County Dental Society's 18th volume of Dentists’ Quarterly for his article on the newest technology available to help bone grafting and dental implants, the recombinant human bone morphogenetic protein in New York City. Dr. Stein’s article, “A New Approach to Reconstructing Difficult Maxillary Defect— Recombinant Human Bone Morphogenic Protein,” depicts an easier, less invasive, safer, and more efficient method of gaining enough bone support to anchor dental implants. Bone Morphogenic Protein (BMP) in NYC actually stimulates bone formation at the site in need of more bone support, circumventing the need for bone grafts in order to insert dental implants.

According to Mark Stein, D.D.S., M.D., dental professionals are leaning away from removable dentures and towards permanent dental implants as the first method of choice in order to repair missing teeth. Some patients, however, lack the necessary bone density to make dental implants a viable option. Until recently, bone grafting in NY was the standard procedure to improve a person’s bone density and prepare their jaw for dental implants in NY. Bone grafting, however, involves harvesting bone from a donor location, such as another location on the mouth or the hip, and transferring the harvested bone to the jaw. After bone grafting, patients must wait 4 to 9 months for the grafting site to heal before they may receive implants. This process was necessary to enhance bone density and was the only means to achieve more bone tissue in the needed area. With the advent of bone morphogenic protein in NY, oral surgeons, such as Mark Stein, D.D.S., M.D., can achieve more bone in the needed area by stimulating the bone itself to produce more bone cells.

Recombinant human bone morphogenetic protein Bone Graft in New York City is comprised of two active ingredients: a manmade protein found naturally in the body and an absorbable collagen sponge (ACS). The protein stimulates the formation of new bone, and the absorbable collagen sponge regulates when the protein is released over a period of time. The absorbable collagen sponge also acts as a trellis on which the newly stimulated bone may form, grow, and take shape. Eventually, the body absorbs the ACS with actual bone. Using bone morphogenic protein in NY instead of traditional bone grafting in New York to increase bone density completely eliminates the need for donor bone from a donor site. This method provides patients with an easier, less invasive procedure to ready the mouth for dental implants in New York.
