Bone Graft / Oral Surgery

Sinus Elevation

This procedure involves elevating the sinus membrane and placing the bone graft into the space of void created above the sinus floor. The new foundation established can now allow implants to be placed in the back part of the upper jaw.

Ridge Augmentation Procedures

Deformities on the upper and lower jaw can leave the patient with inadequate bone and gum tissue thickness for either an aesthetic and fuctional bridge or dental implant tooth. These bone/gum deformities may have been caused by trauma, developmental defects, preiodontal disease or wearing dentures.

Bone grafts are performed to recreate adequate bone dimensions prior to dental implant placement.

Piezo Surgery

Piezo technology represents the latest advanced technology for implant and periodontal surgical procedures. Precise, controlled three-dimensional ultrasound vibrations are used to provide maximum surgical precision and no damage to soft tissue, which results in increased patient comfot following surgery.

Growth Factors & Regeneration

Emdogain Gel - Comprised of Various Enamel Matrix Protein that work by mimicking the biological processes of natrual tooth development. It induces regeneration by mediating formation by of cermentum on the root of the tooth, providing a foundation for all necessary tissues associated with a true functional attachment.

Gem 21s - Growth-factor Enhanced Matrix is a completely synthetic grafting system engineered to stimulate wound healing and bone regeneration by triggering a cascade of molecular events when implanted into the body that continues on even after the growth factor is gone. In-vitro and animal studies have demonstrated the PDGF is a broad acting growth factor with mitogenic (cell proliferation) and chemotactic (cell recruitment) effects on osteoblasts, cementoblasts and periodontal ligament cells. Infact, the PDGF containted in GEM 21S significantly increses the proliferation and migration of osteoblasts and other cells of the periodontium.

Infuse - INFUSE Bone Graft is recombinant human bone morphogentic protein-2 (rhBMP-2) applied to an absorbable collagen sponge carrier. The purpose of the protein, which occurs naturally in the body, is to stimulate bone formation. Implanted into a bone-deficient site, INFUSE Bone Graft works with the body's own biology to induce normal bone formation. The primary advantages of INFUSE Bone Graft is that it eliminated the need to perform a second surgery to harvest bone from another location in your body. By eliminating this second site, the patient is exposed to less anesthesia, and will not have the potential complications such as pain, numbness and swelling from the area of the second surgery.
