Zygomatic implant placement courses
The atrophic edentulous maxilla represents a challenge when clinicians are planning implant-supported prosthetic rehabilitation. For the last 30 years, surgeons have been compensating for the lack of bone volume with bone grafting and sinus lift treatments. But there is an alternative. By anchoring in the zygomatic bone, the NobelZygoma implant system can enable an immediate loading protocol. This dramatically shortens time-to-teeth for increased patient satisfaction and allows patients suffering from severe maxillary bone loss to return to a normal quality of life.1
The right education level for your needs
Nobel Biocare’s zygomatic implants are designed to support restorative procedures that also allow for immediate loading.2,3,4,5 This allows eligible patients with severe bone loss to have a fixed provisional prosthesis fitted immediately after surgery, avoiding the average nine-month wait and multiple surgeries required with grafting.*
These courses are designed for maxillofacial surgeon and experienced clinians who are already proficient in rehabilitating the edentulous maxilla with dental implants and want to extend their expertise to zygomatic implants. This course will address how zygomatic implant procedures can:
- Avoid the need for more intensive surgery.
- Reduce the need for bone grafting.
- Provide a full-arch restoration in lesser time compared with grafting.
Core course topics include:
- Basic principles of zygomatic implants
- Treatment planning
- Risk assessment
- Surgical protocol
- Hands-on training
Gain the skills to perform zygomatic implant placement and implement this treatment alternative in your practice.
Zygomatic implants help avoid grafting and shorten treatment time, with significant post-operative improvements in function and esthetics.6,7 Building on 25 years of success with Nobel Biocare’s zygomatic implants, the new NobelZygoma 0° and NobelZygoma 45° implants are also designed to anchor in zygomatic bone and provide an excellent option for treating maxillary resorption.
