About the Event

WHAT IS THIS EVENT ABOUT?

Over the last two decades, the indications for zygomatic implants have expanded to encompass situations involving severe posterior maxillary resorption where there is insufficient bone for traditional implant placement. Additional indications found in the literature involve maxillary insufficiency resulting from cleft palate, unsuccessful conventional implant therapy, failed bone graft procedures, or a patient's refusal to undergo bone grafting. Notably, patients who have undergone complete or partial maxillectomy due to benign or malignant tumor resections continue to represent a primary application for zygomatic implants. These implants play a crucial role in supporting obturators and/or removable prostheses.

Despite remaining a complex procedure associated with significant surgical risks and the potential for complications, the utilization of zygomatic implants has experienced a remarkable surge, supported by documented high survival rates.
