Biphasic Calcium Sulfate as 2nd generation technological breakthrough in the long history of CS bone regenerationRead More
The course is aimed to provide all the necessary information to smoothly transition to Augma bone cement from traditional grafting and shorten the learning curve to minimal.
Calcium sulfate has been in use in medical surgery for more than 120 years—the patented biphasic calcium sulfate, since 2010. The reason Calcium Sulfate has not been used widely in dentistry is due to its inability to set in the presence of blood and saliva. Dr. Yahav has developed the formulation that allowed the material to be used intraorally.
Augma Bone Graft Cement can be used in the treatment of periodontal defects. The flap reflection, graft placement, and soft tissue closure are the same as the protocols for socket grafting with flap reflection.
There is no predictable recommended protocol at the moment for peri-implantitis treatment using Augma. This includes cases with less severe mobility.
No augmentation should be performed until all signs, and acute symptoms have disappeared. This may take about 2-3 weeks, and sometimes even longer, after antibiotic administration and elimination of the cause. Therefore, there is no definite, exact time frame. The decision should be made at least two weeks after the recession of the acute symptoms.
In cases of acute infection, no augmentation should be performed until all symptoms regress. In symptomless chronic situations, augmentation can be performed after proper debridement.
When performing socket preservation, after the extraction and preparation for a future implant, a small perforation may be visible on the buccal or the base of the socket. Augma can be placed over the perforation simultaneously with the closing of the perforation.
Augma Bone Graft Cement is self-stabilizing. No tenting screws are needed
