The Zygomatic Implant: Preliminary Data on Treatment of Severely Resorbed Maxillae. A Clinical Report
Bedrossian, Edmond / Stumpel III, Lambert / Beckely, Michael / Indresano, Thomas
The Brånemark Zygomaticus implant was used in conjunction with premaxillary standard implants for the reconstruction of resorbed edentulous maxillae. A total of 44 zygomatic implants and 80 premaxillary implants were placed in 22 patients. All implants were stabilized at phase II surgery using a rigid bar. After soft tissues had healed, implant-supported fixed prostheses were fabricated. This article presents a preliminary report on 22 patients followed for 34 months, with a 100% success rate for the zygomatic implants and a 91.25% success rate for the premaxillary implants.
