Augmentation of a large 3D defect using Bond Apatite
Patient 58 years old healthy female
This case represents augmentation procedure in a large three dimensional defect using Bond Apatite (Augma Biomaterials) as graft material. After extraction and complete debridement, a large defect with absence of the buccal plate can be seen.
Bond Apatite bone graft cement was placed within the defect and overfilled to compensate for wound shrinkage.
Soft tissue closure, with tension, was accomplished by stretching the tissue without any periosteal or connective tissue release. The incision is closed for maximal closure (2-3 mm exposure is acceptable).
Soft tissue closure was done over the graft volume, without the use of a membrane.
During the follow-up period healing proceeded uneventfully.
Reentry was performed 3 months post op revealing bulky new formed vital bone in the previously grafted site.
