The decision to load implants is case dependent. One of many factors is the amount of presurgical available bone. In general, Bond Apatite bone graft cement on average regenerates bone in lateral sinus lifts in 5 months. Ascertaining appropriate implant stability to accept prosthetic loading in a clinical decision that has to undertaken by the clinician and their particular patient.
There is no limitation. One can add as many syringes as needed one after the other. The second consecutive layer always bonds to the first one, even when the cement has already hardened.
In a crestal approach, after the cement is activated, it is ejected into a sterile dish and left to set for 3 minutes, then crushed into small fragments. During this stage, the particles become sticky. The reason to use this approach is that it is easier to push sticky particles into the osteotomy and to lift the sinus membrane simultaneously.
Yes, Augma bone cement can be used together with osseodensification techniques. The cement can be applied according to the procedure for a crestal approach sinus lift.
If there is a perforation of the sinus membrane during the preparation for a crestal sinus lift, it is recommended to stop the procedure, close the flap, wait a few months, and then try to perform the procedure again.
The initial stability for any implant is due to placement in the residual bone. The purpose of bone graft cement is to regenerate bone around the implant. It has no continuous cementing properties. Bond Apatite has bioactive properties to regenerate bone.
When 3D Bond™ is used on its own, the material is completely resorbed and replaced by the patient’s own bone, which is apparent while viewing an x-ray.
Approximately a week post-operation, a radiolucent shading in the circumference can be noticed in an x-ray. This shading will expand up to the fourth week when the entire area will be completely radiolucent. It seems as though the material has completely disappeared, but this is not the case. This is the un-calcified osteoid. Gradually, calcification of the area will take place, so that up to three months after implantation, the entire area will be radiopaque in the x-ray, with an identical appearance to the adjacent native trabecular bone.
