Bone Morphogenetic Protein
Bone Morphogenetic Protein − Asheville NC
Bone morphogenic protein is an isolated protein that induces specific cells in our body to form new cartilage and bone. Biltmore Oral & Facial Surgery Phone Number 828-505-1960
Bone Morphogenic Protein Overview
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.
