Bond Apatite- Clinical Cases

Bond Apatite® - Clinical Case - 1


Deformed  crest with large bone deficiency can be seen after multiple extractions

Graft stability was achieved instantly during  the placement of Bond Apatite® cement

The graft was covered directly and thoroughly by the soft tissue, using  conventional primary soft tissue closure techniques

4.5 months post-op during re-entry, the entire ridge reconstruction can be seen

Implant in place within the reconstructed ridge

Bond Apatite® - Clinical Case - 2

Augmentation of large bone defect using Bond Apatite®

In this case the two inferiors hopeless molars 37 38 was removed .the socket and the ridge was preserve by augmenting the area with Bond apatite bone graft cement. After teeth removal and complete debridement of the site the application of the cement was according to the protocol  in 3 consecutive steps ,place ,press ,close .

the cement was ejected directly into the grafted site from its

”all in one ”syringe and then press firmly with a dry gauze for 3 second ,followed by primary soft tissue closure directly above the cement  .no membrane was needed .

12 weeks post op at reentry the new patient own bone was formed and the 3D ridge  volume was preserved . At this stage implant placement took place

Bond Apatite® - Clinical Case - 3

Bone reconstruction in the aesthetic zone

In the following case, a 30 years old female came to the clinic describing discomfort feeling and tooth mobility of the left upper lateral incisive. during clinical evaluation a fistula was detached buccally near the apex zone of the tooth .preapical radiographic evaluation reveals a large radiolucency in connection with the tooth apex.

The treatment plan was to extract the tooth and to remove the lesion .to augment and to place an implant at the second stage.

After the extraction and the site preparation for augmentation Bone Apatite cement was used as a graft material .the soft tissue was primarily closed directly above the graft without using any membrane.

3 months post op one piece implant was placed and load with a provisional acrylic crown.

Fistula can be seen during
Clinical examination

The defected tooth was carefully extracted  and the granulation soft tissue was removed completely.

Leaving behind a large bone defect with buccal plate deficiency.

Bond Apatite® - Clinical Case - 4

Crest Preservation with Immediate Implant Placement

  • After clinical and radiographic evaluation due to the poor prognosis of the existing dentition. The treatment plan was to extract all the existing lower teeth and in addition to removing the 2 failed implants 45,46 (29,30) while keeping implant 33 (22) in place. Thereafter, to perform immediate implant placement of 3 implants and simultaneously augment and preserve the crest. The final prosthetic plan was to provide the patient removable overdentures on those implants.
  • After extraction and complete debridement, implants were placed with good primary stability and the crest was augmented by using Augma’s Bond Apatite bone graft cement.

Implant placement and Augmentation Procedure

The flap was raised and minimally dissected for release, the release should be as minimal as required in order to have moderate tension during the closure, not tension free. Hard tissue was prepared and the implant (DMI Technologies Ltd.)  was placed submerged by one millimeter below the crest with good primary stability, it’s important that the implant is anchored to the bone in order to regain their primary stability.

Thereafter, Augma’s Bond Apatite Cement was used to augment the crest.

After activation of the cement within its syringe, it was ejected directly above the implants and above the crest and slightly overfilled. Thereafter pressed for 3 seconds using a dry gauze pad above. ( An instrument should not be used to push the  cement between the implant and the socket walls .)

Following the placement of the cement, soft tissue closure occurred. The cement was covered directly by the flap and no membrane was used. The flap was sutured in place with moderate tension. ( it’s important that the soft tissue closure shouldn’t be tension free as within the conventional augmentation techniques ).

The Soft tissue should be maximally closed, do not leave the cement exposed more than 1-3 mm.

3 Months Post Op

  • Healing went uneventfully and re-entry took place after 12 weeks.
  • During re-entry a diamond bur was used to remove access bone grown above the cover screws, integration of the implants was achieved and ball attachments were connected to the implants

Dental Bone Graft Cement - Bond Apatite®

Bond Apatite® is a novel product of Augma Biomaterials Ltd. It is a combination of 3D Bond™ (biphasic calcium sulfate) with a formula of hydroxyapatite granules. This is a cement-based osteoconductive composite, synthetic bone graft substitute that is used for bone reconstruction in a range of dental applications and is intended for filling, augmenting and reconstructing the wide diversity of defects in the maxillofacial bones.

Bond Apatite® is FDA cleared and CE approved. As of 2015, Bond Apatite® is delivered in an all-in-one dual-chamber, prefilled syringe, containing the granulated powder and physiological saline. Mixing the powder component with the liquid in the driver results in a viscous composite that is suitable for injection into the graft site.

The advantages of Bond Apatite® Bone Graft Cement

  • Self-setting cement, with the ability to adhere and harden instantly at the defected site. Less than a minute is required for graft placement and stabilisation; significantly reducing time and simplifying the procedure.

  • Membrane coverage is nonobligatory 

  • Highly biocompatible and bioactive material

  • Lowered costs
  • Easy and convenient to use – thanks to the unique syringe that provides an innovative workflow.
