Immediate Load Despite Extreme Maxillary Bone Loss with Zygoma Implants

Description:
Zygoma implants are an accepted alternative to bone augmentation in the posterior part of the Maxilla. The challenge of placing a Zygoma implant in a narrow Zygomatic bone, or even 2 implants in the same area, calls for a guided approach. The technique for making and using such a guide is shown in this concise lecture, along with a 4 zygomatic implant assembly operation.

Hi and thanks for the kind words. To Dr Jones: best reference was a book by Aparicio: Zygomatic implants. Can be bought through Amazon.Com To Dr Salvoni: I think a predisposition to Peri-implantitis will be greater when using Zygoma implants that are threaded all the way, such as Nobel, and less with those with smooth surfaces such as the Norismedical-medical implants I used. Also, the amount of Keratinized tissue on the buccal is important. It is therefore important to make the incision a bit more Palatinaly, and the implant placement accordingly. The early loading in itself can obstruct the patient from cleaning the area thoroughly, and so it is very important to educate them on hygiene. I give them an Oxyget machine for free. To Dr Salama: I think the best method is the slot technique. Placing the implants through the sinus makes the prosthetics more bulky because of the very Palatinal location of the implants. Maintenance becomes more difficult and less comfortable for the patient. The external technique is less stable and there is a greater chance of dehiscence. Dr Paulo Malo from Portugal made a lot of research on Zygoma implants, and this is his preferred method too. On a personal note: placing Zygoma implants is not for the faint of heart. It is the most difficult thing I do, much more difficult than sinus lifts or bone augmentation, at least for me. After many cases I still loose my hair each time, mostly because of the proximity to the orbita and the lack of clear view of what I am doing. The guided approach helped me feel safer.

Wonderful presentation, thank you. I've seen the surgery and taken the class, but am still hesitant to jump in and do my first case. Any suggestions or references that you found useful when you were starting out? Again, thank you for such an interesting case!

A gift to the profession and our members to have Drs. Alexander Salvoni and Meir Aviram share their experiences with Zygomatic Implants on this site.... a treasure of information. Thank you both. Dr. S

ALEXANDER SALVONI - (8/9/2015 11:59 AM)

Thanks for sharing your experience Dr Aviram, it would not be immediate loading a predisposition factor to periimplantitis? What are your thoughts? Thanks again...

Thank you Dr Aviram for this wonderful surgery. Kindly, what is your implant system used?and what the companies which produce zygoma implants? Thanks again.

Maurice Salama - (8/7/2015 12:56 PM)

Meir; Outstanding presentation and thanks for sharing. In your experience, what method of Zygomatic placement do you feel provides the most predictable long term results? There are several different approaches mentioned by previous Xperts on DentalXP like Dr. Salvoni. What are your thoughts? Thanks Dr. Salama

Partial Extraction Therapies: From Failure to Everyday Practice - Part 2 of 4
Tooth extraction is usually followed by the resorption of support tissues that may compromise the aesthetic and functional prognosis of the final rehabilitation. There have been numerous publications suggesting Partial Extraction Therapies contribute to the maintenance of the alveolar ridge dimensions. These techniques consist in intentionally preserving a buccal root fragment in order to avoid tearing the periodontal ligament and loosing the bundle bone, which leads to bone resorption. It has been reported that these are very sensitive techniques and may lead to some complications. In order to avoid these complications, the dental surgeon must know which cases can be treated with Partial Extraction Therapies and how to correctly perform them. In these presentations we will show what are the indications and contraindications, how to perform these techniques, the literature that sustains it, how can we benefit from digital technology to today's world, etc.

Esthetic Tissue Reconstruction Around Implants - Part 2 of 2 Premium Member Content

Esthetic Tissue Reconstruction Around Implants - Part 2 of 2
Esthetics in implant-supported restorations is an important clinical objective in contemporary dentistry. Understanding the biological behavior of hard and soft tissues following tooth extraction is the first step to anticipate the physiological tissue remodeling and its consequences. Our objective in these 2 sequential lectures was to provide straightforward decision trees related to several clinical scenarios observed in routine clinical practice. The 3 fundamental pillars for peri-implant excellence are: restorative-driven implant position, hard and soft tissue reconstruction using different biomaterials and grafts, and prosthetic management. Using this philosophical approach seems to provide esthetic and stable results over time irrespective of the initial clinical condition.

Modern Implant Dentistry: Rules of Engagement in the Esthetic Zone - Part 1 of 2
This presentation will focus on the interdisciplinary relationship of the restorative dentist, periodontist and orthodontist to reconstruct the soft tissue foundation for all of these restorative options in anterior tooth replacement. The diagnosis of deficiencies as well as the varied treatment options will be discussed in detail. This includes periodontal crown lengthening, esthetic periodontal plastic soft tissue grafting procedures as well as prescription adjunctive orthodontic tooth movement to manipulate the soft tissue foundation prior to or subsequent with the restorative options of implants, bridges, or pontic replacement.

Immediate Implants: Partial / Full Arch Rehabilitation & GBR - Part 2
By scientific studies produced in recent years has been confirmed, in selected cases, the validity of the post-extraction implants. The use of this method implies a lower emotional impact, a single surgery and a healing often better for the patient. We will be discussed traumatic extraction methods, perfect insertion of the implants with or without bone regeneration with bone substitutes and membranes and the opportunity to combine an advanced method as immediate implant with the execution of an immediate loading to restore aesthetics in more complex cases.

The Socket-Shield Technique to Support the Buccofacial Tissues at Immediate Implant Placement

The Socket-Shield Technique to Support the Buccofacial Tissues at Immediate Implant Placement
Tooth loss and subsequent ridge collapse continue to burden restorative implant treatment. Careful management of the post-extraction tissues is needed to preserve the alveolar ridge. In-lieu of surgical augmentation to correct a ridge defect, the socket-shield technique offers a promising solution. As the root submergence technique retains the periodontal attachment and maintains the alveolar ridge for pontic site development, this case report demonstrates the hypothesis that retention of a prepared tooth root section as a socket-shield prevents the recession of tissues buccofacial to an immediately placed implant. The socket-shield technique is a highly promising addition to clinical implant dentistry and this case report is among the first to demonstrate the procedure in clinical practice with a 1-year follow up.
