Bone morphogenetic protein, also known as BMP, is an advanced new treatment that uses your body’s natural healing channels to stimulate new bone formation. At Rio Grande Oral Surgery & Dental Implant Center in Albuquerque, NM, Dr. Gregory McGee and Dr. Drew Steel can use BMP to promote bone growth in areas that require augmentation.
If you need a bone grafting or bone augmentation procedure to restore your jawline or prepare for dental implants, sometimes bone morphogenetic protein can be used in addition to or instead of a traditional bone grafting procedure. Rather than sourcing bone from another part of your body, BMP can promote bone growth without the need for additional bone graft sites. If you are undergoing a dental implant procedure, we encourage you to ask about BMP during your initial consultation with Dr. McGee or Dr. Steel.
