INFUSE® Bone Graft is a revolutionary bone graft material, manufactured by Medtronic. It is used in maxillofacial bone grafting procedures including localized alveolar ridge augmentation, and sinus augmentation. This material is approved for use in these procedures by the FDA (US Food and Drug Administration.) Before there was dependable bone graft material, often times to rebuild bone in the sinus or jaw, dentists would require a second procedure, called bone harvest surgery, that takes bone from one area and moves it to the structurally weak area. This can be a painful experience, and increases the time it takes for you to heal. With the artificial bone graft material known as INFUSE® Bone Graft, and the experts at Shuayb Dental, these unnecessary surgeries are a thing of the past.
INFUSE® Bone Graft holds within it an active ingredient know as recombinant human bone morphogenetic protein-2, or rhBMP-2. Inside your body, there is a natural protein that can be found in small amounts. Scientists have since found ways to manufacture these proteins from within a lab. These proteins are well documented to allow bone to actually regrow and heal itself and have been approved for certain oral treatments.
