Due to the replacement of the cement into the patients’ own bone, the Radiographic appearance will vary during the healing period. During graft placement – Radiopaque 2-3 weeks post-op – Radiolucent 12 weeks post-op – Radiopaque
Sinus Lift – Intra Crestal Approach Activate the syringe. After activation, eject the material into a dish and let it set for 3 minutes. Use the syringe as a carrier (Any other bone carriers can be used as well).
Sinus Lift – Lateral Window Approach Activate the syringe and wait 1 minute before application. Eject the cement into the sinus cavity through the sinus lateral window until 2/3 of the sinus is filled (During cement dispersion in the sinus cavity, if needed tap gently above the material with sterile dry gauze to absorb the excess of fluid and blood). For filling the last
Raise a flap The flap should be minimally reflected in order to expose the entire grafted site (Only one vertical cut should be performed no more than 2-3 mm into the mobile mucosa). Do not perform any horizontal periosteal dissection for release. Prepare the site for grafting Cement application Apply the cement and press firmly
Before Flap reflection perform mesial oblique vertical incision (up to 2 mm into the mobile mucosa). Raise full thickness flap, minimally as needed to expose the entire defect (Do not perform any manipulation to get tension free flap. No horizontal dissection release cuts, and no brushing. the flap should be with tension during closure and not tension free).
No need to raise a flap. Extract the tooth and prepare the socket for grafting. Eject the cement into the socket. Press firmly over the cement for 3 seconds using dry sterile unfolded gauze and finger pressure followed by another 3-second press with a peritoneal elevator. Protect the cement by covering it with a collagen sponge and secure the sponge in
