Zygoma implants in maxillary atrophy

The Zygoma implant was originally introduced by Brånemark in 1989 for the oral rehabilitation of patients who had undergone maxillectomy. It later evolved into an alternative treatment to avoid more extensive bone augmentations prior to masticatory rehabilitation of edentulous atrophic maxillae.
This approach represents an adequate stabilization system in which the prosthetic provisional can provide additive implant stabilization immediately after surgery. However, given the anatomical characteristics of zygomatic processes and limited intraoperative visibility, surgical complications during zygoma implant placement – especially when multiple, adjacent zygoma implants are placed – often pose some challeng
In the restoration of the atrophic maxilla, zygoma implants represent an option at least equivalent to two-stage restorations (augmentation and implant placement) with high survival rates and a low number of complications. Affected patients should also be informed about this option
