Reabilitação de maxila atrófica com implantes zigomáticos: relato de caso
The literature shows that zygomatic implants, when well indicated, represent a good alternative for the rehabilitation of severely atrophied maxilla, and may present complications, such as poor placement of implants, compromising rehabilitation.
Treatment of severe atrophic maxilla with zygomatic implants: a case series.
A cases series of eighteen patients rehabilitated with zygomatic together with standard implants and immediate loading is reported, showing this new technique can provide a better stability to the prosthesis and less morbidity for patient.
Management of Complex Edentulousness: A Prosthodontic Panorama
The scope of a zygoma implant in rehabilitating severely resorbed maxilla and the various prosthodontic principles pertaining to a full arch implant-supported prosthesis are discussed in detail.


Rehabilitation of atrophic posterior maxilla with zygomatic implants: review.
Zygomatic implants have a high success rate and constitute a suitable alternative to treat severe posterior maxillary atrophy, and the general level of patient satisfaction was high.
Tilted implants as an alternative to maxillary sinus grafting: a clinical, radiologic, and periotest study.
Results indicate that the use of tilted implants is an effective and safe alternative to maxillary sinus floor augmentation procedures.
Systematic review of survival rates for implants placed in the grafted maxillary sinus.
Anatomic site evaluation of the zygomatic bone for dental implant placement.
The study reveals that the zygomatic bone consists of trabecular bone with parameters that are unfavourable for implant placement, however, the success of implants placed in the zykomatic bone is secured by the employment of at least four cortical portions.
Short implants in the severely resorbed maxilla: a 2-year retrospective clinical study.
This study demonstrates that the use of short implants may be considered for prosthetic rehabilitation of the severely resorbed maxilla as an alternative to more complicated surgical techniques.
