Zygoma Implants – Free Hand or Guided?

  10:15 - 10:50 am

Saturday Morning Session

James Chow, MBBS, MDS

Similarly to conventional implants, it is important to place the zygomatic implant at its optimal position so as to fulfill the biological, functional and biomechanical requirements for predictable outcomes. Since the zygomatic implant is a tilted implant, it means we have to control the entry and exit location and the trajectory of its path. This presentation will present how to place the zygomatic implants by free hand surgery and guided surgery. The significance of the guided surgery will also be discussed.

Upon completion of this presentation, participants should be able to: 1) explain the importance of optimal positioning of the zygomatic implants; 2) discuss the digital workflow of guided surgery for the zygomatic implants; and 3) list the advantages and limitations of the guided surgery for the zygomatic implants.
