Dr. Alex Farnoosh, an oral surgeon in Beverly Hills, is on the forefront of bone grafting technology for reliable bone regeneration and bone grafting in periodontal and implant surgery.
Beverly Hills, CA, September 2010 – It is often difficult to use dental implants on patients who have insufficient amount of jaw bone, which is caused by missing teeth, periodontal disease, and other problems. Fortunately, gum augmentation through oral cosmetic surgery supplements a patient’s bone and allow implants to be placed for proper function and aesthetic. Various bone grafting materials currently exist as treatment options to effectively anchor an implant. Traditional materials include bovine mineral, human cadaveric bone and autogenous bone. Autogenous bone is often an attractive option, however, some patients may not wish to have an additional surgery to harvest bone from another site on his or her body such as the chin, angle of the lower jaw or hip.
Recently, however, the FDA has approved use of Bone Morphogenetic Protein 2 (BMP-2), a genetically made protein that has the ability to grow bone from a patient’s own cells, for bone grafting. BMP-2 material can be used to prevent loss of jaw bone experienced after tooth removal and regenerate bone for bone grafts and for sinus and ridge augmentation. Clinical results demonstrate Infuse is superior to standard methods (bovine, cadaver, ceramic, etc.) and is, in fact, the most reliable bone grafting material available.
Oral surgeon in Beverly Hills Dr. Alex Farnoosh recognizes the value of BMP-2 and utilizes it in his oral and implant surgeries. “BMP-2 is the future of dental and implant surgery,” says Dr. Farnoosh, “Because an inadequate amount of jaw bone is no longer an inhibiting factor, restoring dentition and oral health to my patients is faster and more effective than ever.”
Dr. Farnoosh is at the forefront of the BMP-2 movement and uses Infuse for bone grafts, ridge and sinus augmentation which restores the natural contour of the gums and jaw bone, which often recede after tooth loss and periodontal disease.
