Bone Morphogenetic Protein technology

medical techniques to regrow jawbone

Bone morphogenic protein is an isolated protein that induces specific cells in our body to form new cartilage and bone. During surgery, the 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. The BMP also goes away once it has completed its task of jump starting the normal bone healing process.

Since there is no need to harvest bone from the patients’ hip for BMP, recipients were spared donor site pain. Complications from the graft harvest site are also eliminated with the use of bone morphogenic protein.

Dr. Grant or Dr. Mergelmeyer would be happy to discuss all grafting options with you at the time of consultation.

Our Latest Patient Testimonial

From the moment I walked in the door, I had no fear! The team at CORE treated me with respect and kindness, educating me on every single step of the process to ensure I felt comfortable about the procedure I had done. Even during the procedure (I chose to be awake), I was coached along along each step of the way. All team members are experts in their positions, and they are truly a cohesive team that ensures every patient leaves happy and smiling (literally).
