Growth Factors

Bone Growth Factors – State Of The Art in Bone Growth
bone-growth-factorsHave you been told that you have insufficient bone for Dental Implants ? Antwerp Implant Dentistry champions the latest techniques in  Implant Dentistry including bone growth. Let us examine you and offer you advice on how to restore your mouth, even if your jaw is bone deficient.

When performing a bone graft of which ever type, these can be mixed with bone growth factors to improve the bone volume and density. Bone Growth Factors are  proteins or cell fractions which are painted onto the implant bone site. One of the factors currently used by Antwerp Implant Dentistry is PRGF (platelet derived growth factors).

These factors cause cell signalling in bone cells and can result in a large volume of  bone growth around an existing bone graft.

Dental Implant Surgeons are researching a novel growth factor known as BMP 2 (bone morphogenetic protein 2), and this product, when ready for use in humans may eliminate the need for bone grafts altogether.

Antwerp Implant Dentistry keeps abreast of all the advancements in Dental Implantology and brings bone growth factor technology to our patients in Cambridge.
