Online Article: Management of Soft Tissue Irritation Around Exposed Zygomatic Implant in a Hemimaxillectomy Patient: A Technical Report
Balshi, Thomas J. / Wolfinger, Glenn J. / Balshi, Stephen F.
Patients missing portions or all of the maxillary alveolar bone who are restored with zygomatic implants frequently have threads exposed that can be a mucosal irritant. If such irritation is reported, covering the threads with a highly polished titanium sleeve is recommended. The technique of placing said custom sleeve is described. This adjunctive treatment method has eliminated mucosal irritation.
