Zygomatic implants focusing on treatment planning
- Indications for zygomatic implants
- Importance of diagnosis and treatment planning in severely atrophied jaws
- Case presentations with hybrid All-on-4
- Case presentations with double zygoma implants (quad-zygoma)
In the third part of the webinar series on Tilted Implants, Prof. Enrico Agliardi starts his presentation on the indications for the use of zygomatic implants.
Following the webinars on tilted implants and complex cases with tilted implants, Prof. Agliardi concludes the webinar series with the presentation on treatment options for patients with severely atrophied maxillae. These cases present themselves as very demanding to the surgeon as there is no residual bone available to place intraoral implants and also the placement of extraoral implants can be challenging. Prof. Agliardi presents patient cases where he treated the patients with a hybrid All-on-4 treatment and patient cases treated with double zygoma implants (quad-zygoma). He also stresses the fact that a proper analysis of the patient is the first and very important step in providing an optimal solution for the patient. He highlights also the aesthetic impact that these patients suffer from and which should be considered in the treatment planning, next to the restoration of function, as this significantly improves the quality of life for these patients.
After his presentation, Prof. Agliardi discusses the challenges of theses cases with the moderator of the webinar series, Dr. Nikola Vasilic.
