Bone Morphogenetic Protein

Bone morphogenic protein (BMP) is an isolated protein that induces specific cells in our body to form new cartilage and bone. During surgery, BMP is soaked onto and binds with a collagen sponge. The sponge is then designed to resorb, or disappear, over time. As the sponge dissolves, the bone morphogenic protein stimulates the cells to produce new bone. BMP also goes away once it has completed its task of jump-starting the normal bone healing process.

In our opinion, this scientific advancement is one of the most significant tools available to help us manage challenging reconstructive procedures.  We have accumulated significant experience with this technique and are excited about the results our patients have experienced. Our oral surgeons would be happy to discuss all grafting options with you at the time of consultation.
