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.
A soft diet is recommended for the first 2-3 weeks post-op.
This type of site must be protected with a secured collagen sponge/plug or a wound dressing according to the protocols.
The particles are the large HA particles that comprise the remaining 10% of the composition of the Bond Apatite® composite graft cement. At this stage, they are in the process of resorption.
A CBCT image with traditional bone grafting appears radiopaque at all times from day of placement along the course of healing, as well as during reentry, due to the fact that the graft integrates with the bone and is not replaced by it. Therefore, the radiopacity seen in CBCT reflects more the presence of the graft in the site and less the newly-formed bone in between the graft particles. In contrast, when biphasic calcium sulfate bone cement is used, complete resorption of the graft takes place, and the augmented site transforms into a new vital bone. Therefore, in 3-4 months, it is a young bone that might look less radiopaque than the surrounding native bone.
Augma Bone graft cement is inorganic matter, and thus cannot form fibrous tissue. The cement dissolves completely. If at placement Augma Bone Graft Cement is not properly activated, placed and pressed into place and into a properly prepared host site, and if there is a removable prosthesis, or a movable flap or anything else that might interfere with graft stability, then the cement matrix might not hold the space and heal by scar tissue.
The histology slides of Augma bone graft cement present new bone with osteocytes within the bone. This fact reflects that the new bone is vital. With allografts, there is an integration of the allograft particles with the surrounding bone. However, there are no osteocytes within the integrated allograft particles, which is a confirmation that those particles are sterile sequestrum and not vital bone.
Please keep in mind that Augma’s bone graft cement performs as well as under performs in different ways then traditional graft materials
