Restore You Smile With Jaw Bone Regeneration in NYC!
POSTED ON FRIDAY, MARCH 15, 2013 AT 11:35 AM by Dr. Mark Stein
A healthy smile is often associated with good physical health and youth. As we age, maintaining a beautiful smile becomes increasingly challenging. Lifestyle choices such as smoking, health burdens such as diabetes, and trauma or injury can cause an unexpected tooth loss. Unfortunately, many of us fail to recognize how imperative replacing missing teeth is.
When empty spaces are left in the gum line, jawbone weakens. Weak jawbone can lead to widespread tooth loss, teeth that collapse inward, and weaken facial structure. Patients with weakened jawbone may also find they are ineligible for permanent dental restorations, such as dental implants. Restoring lost or weak jawbone, however, is not impossible. Thanks to the sophistication of modern medicine, researchers and doctors have developed bone regeneration of the jaw using less invasive and natural techniques.
Traditionally, oral surgeons would increase bone density with bone transplants by using a patient’s own bone from the hip or other parts of the body. Advances in dentistry however, now allow our NY Oral Surgeon, Dr. Mark Stein, to regenerate jawbone using Bone Morphogenetic Protein in NY. Bone Morphogenetic Protein allows patients to grow new bone cells within a specific jaw location. This technology eliminates the need for a donor site, making Dental Bone Grafting less invasive with less recovery time. As one of the innovators of Bone Morphogenetic Protein, Dr. Stein has inimitable experience when it comes to jawbone grafting at his NYC office. In addition to BMP, Dr. Stein also offers the Infuse Jaw Bone Graft.
FDA approved Infuse Bone Grafting of the jaw in NYC stimulates the production of bone using a recombinant bone morphogenetic protein 2 (rhBMP-2). This protein is normally found in the body and encourages improved healing compared to artificial bone.
In addition to strengthening the jaw, a jawbone graft can also be performed to widen the jaw, or to create more space when patients have insufficient bone between the upper jaw and sinuses. If the mouth is not wide enough, Dr. Stein may perform a ridge expansion to widen the mandible. When patients display inadequate bone between the jaw and the sinuses, sinus lift surgery in NY is usually recommended.
