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.
