About this book


This book provides clinicians with state of the art information on the use of zygomatic implants to restore function and improve quality of life. International experts come together to showcase important innovations and advances in techniques that will assist in the optimization of outcomes. Readers will find information on indications, biomechanics, the role of imaging, digital treatment planning, and all aspects of implant placement. Individual chapters are devoted to different procedures, including the extramaxillary surgical technique, extended sinus lift with retained bone window, the anatomy-guided approach, the quad zygoma technique, and static and dynamic guided surgery.  The use of zygomatic implants specifically in oncology patients is also given detailed consideration. Today, the zygomatic approach offers many advantages for patients with severe maxillary resorption, in whom grafting was in the past unavoidable. In providing an up-to-date global perspective on the zygoma concept, this book will be an invaluable source of guidance for practitioners at all levels of experience.
