Comprehensive treatment concepts, Zygomatic implants

Key points

  • Zygomatic implants have been an evidence-based surgical and prosthetic solution for nearly two decades (using the two-stage approach)
  • Since 2007 zygomatic implants have been proven to work in the immediate function protocol
  • In severely resorbed clinical situations, zygomatic implants are the only option to rehabilitate the patient immediately
  • Zygomatic implants are a proven alternative to bone grafting
  • Careful attention to treatment planning will facilitate a more straight-forward prosthetic reconstruction

Indications

Zygomatic implants have been documented as a an alternative for the rehabilitation of the atrophic posterior maxilla with both the classical two stage and immediate loading protocols. Zygomatic implants avoid grafting and sinus lift procedures and therefore contribut
