BMP Infuse® Bone Graft is comprised of two main active ingredients, the protein that stimulates bone growth and the collagen sponge. The collagen sponge releases the protein over time and acts as a mold for new bone growth to form against. Eventually, the collagen sponge will be absorbed into the body, and new, dense, natural bone will remain. The specific protein used in BMP Infuse® Bone Graft in New York is rhBMP-2, which is a synthesized version of a natural protein found in the body. Once sufficient bone has grown in the needed sites of the jaw, our dental implant specialists may then insert dental implants. Dental implants are a permanent solution to missing teeth, and building sufficient bone density, whether through BMP Infuse® Bone Graft or bone grafting, may be necessary. Our oral surgeons will discuss which method of building bone density is best for you during your personal consultation.
