Lateral augmentation - Dr. David Baranes D.M.D
Lateral augmentation can be a challenge procedure when the conventional bone grafts perform it and the conventional techniques. However, when it is done with bone cement in this case with Bond Apatite, it becomes a very simple and predictable procedure. As long as the protocol is respected .the clinician should change his granules state of mind and should work with the cement simple as instructed by three consecutive steps place press close.
Place the cement into the grafted site, Press with dry gauze for 3 seconds, and close the flap .graft placement and stabilization can be done in less than a minute. The flap should be primary close however not with tension free as we use to when working with membrane and granules
