Lateral augmentation procedures for the expansion of narrow bone ridges pose complex challenges for the clinician.
First, traditional augmentation techniques require extensive knowledge and experience due to the instability of existing bone grafting materials at the implant site. The more complex the procedure is, the higher the chances for a post-operative complication are.
Second, conventional invasive surgical techniques are mandatory for obtaining a tension-free flap and primary closure while also requiring usage of additives, pins, and membranes resulting in increased operational time and cost.
Working with bone graft cement is a powerful mean as it allows the clinician to shape the material immediately at the augmented site, in which post modeling is set and hardens in situ and does not require any membrane coverage.
Combined with surgical protocols that do not require tension-free flap and primary closure, a lateral augmentation with Augma bone cement becomes a simple and predictable operation. Moreover, chances for postoperative complications, including severe and soft tissue loss, are decreased significantly.
In this webinar, Dr. Yahav will discuss in depth bone graft cement protocols for lateral augmentation. The lecture will cover many aspects, including conditions for success, treatment needed to achieve the desired bone volume safely and follow-up throughout the healing process.
