Sinus Slot Technique for Simplification and Improved Orientation of Zygomaticus Dental Implants: A Technical Note
Stella, John Paul / Warner, Michael R.
The zygomaticus dental implant, designed by Nobel Biocare for the Brånemark System, is indicated primarily for the severely resorbed maxilla. Though the zygomaticus implant has had a remarkable success rate in a very difficult patient population, there are some shortcomings to the protocol for placement. The sinus slot technique described herein provides a simplified approach to zygomaticus implant placement, as compared to the currently recommended protocol.
