Course abstract

This presentation will discuss the critical factors necessary to provide a fixed implant supported restoration for patients with limited residual maxillary alveolus. The program focuses on the systematic treatment protocol for decision making as to grafting or to adopt the graftless approaches using the tilted or Zygoma concept. Alternative options for treatment of complications and catastrophic failures will be demonstrated. This includes the “rescue-concept’ and a “Quad-Zygoma” approach.
