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.
Augma Bone Graft Cement - 3D Bond™, composed of pure biphasic calcium sulfate completely resorbs in 4-10 weeks.
Bond Apatite® is a composite graft made of biphasic calcium sulfate and HA in a specific particle size distribution, in a ratio of 2:1. This combination takes advantage of each part of its components. Calcium sulfate acts as a short-range space maintainer scaffold; it completely degrades in strict relation to bone formation rate (4-10 weeks), while the HA acts as a long term space maintainer. The amount of HA within the graft is in a relatively small proportion in a controlled particle size distribution and is intended only to slow down the overall resorption of the graft. The small and medium size of the HA particles resorbs as well in 4-6 months, while the large particles, which consist of about 10%, remain in the grafted site for a longer period. The bioactivity and the rapid graft transformation into vital bone are due to the biphasic calcium sulfate that occupied most of the grafted site. The calcium sulfate encourages angiogenesis, osteoblastic activity, enhanced calcification and is completely degraded and replaced with the patient’s own bone
Augma Bone Graft Cement completely transforms into the patient’s bone. Therefore, it behaves like any vital natural bone and carries no increased risk of peri-implantitis.
Augma bone graft cement does not integrate with the bone. Instead, it resorbs and transforms completely and regenerates the patient’s own bone. After the bone formation, the natural biological bone remodeling process takes place continuously, while the bone continues to calcify and mature throughout the years like any living bone.
In most cases with Augma bone graft cement, one can expect to see type 2-3 bone after four months.
This depends on the case. In cases of socket grafting, when Augma bone graft cement is used, three months are usually sufficient; in lateral augmentation, 4-5 months is recommended.
Augma Bone Graft Cement is an excellent and effective way to enlarge the bony width around the implants.
The graft volume is optimum at 3-4 months, but the regenerated bone is immature and is still undergoing mineralization. Waiting longer to place an implant will result in regenerated volume reduction.
