Bone Morphogenetic Protein
Bone morphogenic protein is an isolated protein that induces specific cells in our body to form new cartilage and bone. During surgery, the BMP is soaked onto and binds with a collagen sponge. The sponge is then designed to resorb, or disappear, over time. As the sponge dissolves, the bone morphogenic protein stimulates the cells to produce new bone. The BMP also goes away once it has completed its task of jump starting the normal bone healing process.
Since there is no need to harvest bone from the patients’ hip for BMP, recipients were spared donor site pain. Complications from the graft harvest site are also eliminated with the use of bone morphogenic protein.

Patient Review By Barb C
I am a retired nurse with 35 years of experience. I feel that I am a good judge of professionalism within the medical field. I was very impressed with my overall experience from the scheduling people to the very talented Surgeon, Dr. Krueger. I had tori removed from my mouth and was nervous about this surgery however Dr. Krueger was able to ease my anxiety of this impending surgery. The surgery went exceedingly well and the post op period was uneventful and the discomfort was minimal. I only wish I had this surgery years ago. I would recommend Dr. Krueger to anyone who is nervous regarding mouth surgery. He is kind, empathic and professional.

Patient Review By Catherina M
I've gone in a few times and have had fillings done. One of my fillings was very stubborn but the staff and Doctor did everything they could to get it taken care of and it worked. Upon my recent visit for a simple cleaning all the staff asked how my filling was doing. That surprised me that they would remember with how many patients come by every day. Everyone is kind and fantastic at their jobs. I highly recommend this clinic to anyone looking for a new dentist!

everyone was calm and courteous. Dr. Krueger inspired my confidence which for me is not an easy thing to do. He patiently answered all questions. After surgery he called to make sure I was doing well. Thank you so much for the wonderful care.
