If you need a bone graft for dental implants, technology from your own body can help.
There are a lot of "additives" that can be added to your bone graft. Some of these additives are scientifically studied and some are just gimmicks. Some may cost you an exorbitant amount of money such as recombinant human Bone Morphogenetic Protein-2 (rhBMP 2) made by Mectron.
BMP is something that helps bone grow. It is not a gimmick. But why pay for it when your body naturally makes it! BMP increases the price of dental implant bone grafts by $1500 to $7500, and that is only for the BMP…no bone or implants!
BMP sold on the market is made from other human beings.
I use a modern and proven additive called PRP…"Platelet Rich Plasma."
PRP is made from YOUR OWN BLOOD, not someone elses. I draw a small amount of your blood and separate out the important healing parts by placing it in a medical instrument called a centrifuge. I usually draw the blood though the same IV that is used for the sedation medications. That way you only have to get one “stick” in the arm.
Your own blood already has BMP (Bone Morphogenetic Protein-2 (BMP 2)!
PRP is used for more than just dentistry. Medical doctors and veterinarians use PRP to heal wounds and decrease surgical complications.
There are many ways to make PRP, but only one way to get the BMP without damaging it. Most implant dentists still use an expensive method from 7-10 years ago that does not work well! Many surgeons add $200 – $400 for PRP.
I charge $0.
PRP makes you heal faster and better so that is why I use it. It is great for sinus lift bone grafts, onlay block bone grafts, bone expansion, extractions, nerve repositioning and everything else!
I have an extremely high success rate in rebuilding and transplanting bone for dental implants. The technique of PRP that I use is safe (it comes from you), effective and free!
