The purpose of this research study is to shorten the treatment time course for patients who are scheduled for surgery to have a dental implant(s) placed into the upper front part of their mouths and need to have more bone in their jaws to support the implant.
The INFUSE® Bone Graft is a device approved by the FDA to be used instead of using your own bone (from another site on your body) to replace missing bone in your jaw. INFUSE® Bone Graft is commercially available and is made up of 2 parts - recombinant human Bone Morphogenetic Protein-2 (rhBMP 2) placed on an absorbable collagen sponge (ACS). The rhBMP-2 is a genetically altered protein which recruits bone-forming cells to the surgical area and changes local cells to bone. ACS is made from Type I collagen from bovine (cattle) tendon. It helps to hold the rhBMP-2 in place and acts as a support for the growing bone. The sponge itself will reabsorb in time as the new bone forms.
The purpose of this research study is to shorten the treatment time course for the patients. This post-market study has been designed to further evaluate the effectiveness and safety of INFUSE® Bone Graft, along with dental implant placement, in a single procedure.

The goal of spinal fusion is to relieve pain and/or increase stability in painful or unstable spine joints. A patient may or may not receive rods and screws with the use of bone graft mate...
OBJECTIVES: I. Quantify periodontal alveolar bone loss rates in postmenopausal women. II. Evaluate the effects of estrogen on alveolar bone loss rates in these patients. III. Determin...
The hypothesis tested in this clinical trial is that a biomimetic synthetic bone graft substitute (MimetikOss, Mimetis Biomaterials) with similar properties to those of human bone can reac...
The current study proposes adding BMP-2 (INFUSE), an anabolic agent, at the surgical site of TPA repair in children with NF1, compared to a control group of patients treated surgically wit...
Secondary alveolar bone grafting is the gold standard for the treatment of alveolar clefts in cleft lip and palate patients. The authors present a modified method using a Scarpa fascia graft that is p...
Alveolar bone is a mechanosensitive tissue that provides structural support for teeth. Alveolar bone loss is common with aging, menopause, tooth loss, and periodontitis and can lead to additional toot...
Reconstruction of bone loss in the alveolar ridge has long been challenging. Autologous bone grafts are considered as the "golden standard", while little research has focused on how to repair pronounc...
Vitamin D is critical for bone homeostasis and immunomodulation. We therefore assessed whether 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D (1,25(OH) D) deficiency in mice with targeted deletion of the gene encoding 25-hy...
Alveolar bone is critical in supporting natural teeth, dental implants as well as a removable and fixed prosthesis. Alveolar bone volume diminishes when its associated natural tooth is lost.
