Course #6: Treatment of the Severely Atrophic Maxilla – Zygomatic Implants

About Course

In a recent review of the literature, immediately loaded zygomatic implants were found to be >95% successful (Tuminelli, F et al., EJOI 2017). Despite high success rates, the high risk nature of zygomatic surgery requires more surgical experience than traditional implants (Chrcanovic, BR et al., JMOS 2016).  

In this 6th course attendees will explore and practice the most predictable, evidence-based, efficient and cost-effective SURGICAL & RESTORATIVE extra-maxillary implant techniques, namely, zygomatic implants. These modern treatment modalities increase success rates, optimize clinical outcomes, patient satisfaction & ultimately, elevating the standard of care. 

Case-based learning extensively covers different types of zygomatic implant therapies. Potential complications patients and clinicians may experience and most importantly how to avoid and manage them effectively are discussed.

Course includes: on-demand didactic training, life-like 3D model surgery including implants and restorative components, immediate prostheses and live surgery trainings

Attendees will also learn to increase case acceptance by enhancing their ability to plan treatment and present complex treatment with the aid of our innovative proprietary software Implantability™.  

Efficiently and effectively planning, presenting, billing and executing successful complex implant treatment improves fulfillment and profitability upgrading your private practice to it’s fullest potential!
