New Protein for Patients with Dental Implants in Trinity

Countless men and women have replaced missing teeth with jaw-bone anchored dental implants in Trinity. Unlike a dental bridge, a dental implant consists of a titanium post inserted into the jaw bone. The bone meshes with the post to create a strong base for the natural-looking prosthetic tooth and crown that attaches to the post.

A Superior Restoration Option

Dental implants are usually the ideal restoration for people who want to replace a missing tooth. There is a problem, however, if the jaw bone is too thin at the implant location. When a tooth is extracted, the bone loses the blood circulation at the former site of the root. Consequently, bone recession often transpires. If the recession is acute, there is not enough bone to hold the dental implant.

Research into Bone Restoration

Bone grafting can augment the bone at the implant site and provide the bone density necessary for a successful implant. This is usually effective, but it does require time for the new bone to be generated. A new discovery may provide a quicker solution for regenerating bone.  Researchers at the Georgia Health Sciences University College of Dental Medicine have identified a protein that quickly stimulates the production of new bone. The research team, led by Dr. Ulf M.E. Wikesjo, implanted bone morphogenetic protein in test subjects and discovered that “more new bone formed within four weeks than with conventional bone grafting.”
