PURPOSE The purposes of this study were to investigate the internal structure of the edentulous zygomatic bone, which provides anchorage for the zygomatic fixture, using micro-computed tomography, and to examine the relation between the internal structure of the edentulous zygomatic bone and the zygomaticus fixture. MATERIALS AND METHODS Twenty-eight zygomatic bones of edentulous maxillae from cadavers were used. The mean age of cadaver specimens was 79.6 years. The specimens were analyzed… CONTINUE READING
