Bond Apatite Graft: Introduction and Clinical Cases

The 2 videos below provide an excellent introduction to Bond Apatite, a composite graft, made of biphasic calcium sulfate mixed with HA granules in a controlled particle size distribution. The material is provided in a pre-filled syringe to create a self-setting cement for bone graft procedures.

    1. I’ll leave the clinical rationale for why no membrane to others, who know alot more than me, but I think it’s very important to note that even when using Bond Apatite, it’s not that a membrane is never used. It’s just that in certain cases, membrane coverage is not essential, as long as your soft tissue is well stabilized, completely closed, and well sutured. You cannot leave this material exposed. I think the correct phrase is really that membrane coverage is advisable, but not essential. I would say that if anyone who is using this product for the first time, should certainly use a membrane, until they’ve done a few cases and are comfortable with the product.

  1. For many years We have been taught that using a membrane is an indispensable and imperative part of our Routine augmentation procedure. And this is certainly true when we are using granules. The use of a membrane coverage is meant to prevent the particle movement and migration, to stabilize our graft, and to prevent the invagination of soft tissue into the augmented site. Nevertheless, the drawback of using a membrane is that we isolate the periosteum from the augmented site and preventing its osteoprogenitor potency. As well it is time consuming, required high skill and additional cost.

    In contrary working with cements is a new and different concept in our field with a different behavior and abilities.
    There is a short learning curve. Cements are not as granules or putties and the working techniques are completely different. You need to eject the graft from its syringe into the defect site, press for 3 seconds, and close your flap. simple as it sounds.

    A proper cement can adhere to the bone, set and become hard instantly. also in the presence of blood and saliva. In less than a minute you can place and stabilize your graft and than close your flap directly above it. Due to the cement characteristics the soft tissue has the ability to proliferate above its surface. That is true as long as your soft tissue is primary closed, tension free and properly sutured. in such case there is no need for membrane coverage.

    If you cannot close your flap properly, we do recommend you to protect your graft with a membrane to prevent volume loss during the healing stage.

  2. I have been using the augma bond apatite cement close to two years now. I use it to graft multiple sockets in a row, alveolar bone restoration after cyst removals, and as my membrane over a sinus window and many other uses. I love the delivery system in a syringe. This makes completing the case so much easier and the result, over all, are very good. No resistance from patients at all due to issues of graft origin etc. highly recommended.
