BMP comes in a liquid form that is then sprayed onto a spongy material. This “collagen sponge” is placed where bone is needed. In six months, the patient’s body will grow bone into the area. The sponge gradually dissolves, and the BMP molecule goes away once it has completed the job of “jump starting” the normal bone healing process. Implants can then be placed into this newly formed bone, which has the patient’s DNA makeup, is healthy, and has a great blood supply.
