This book is about zygomatic implants, which are a type of dental implants that are placed in the cheekbone instead of the jawbone. This book explains why zygomatic implants are useful for patients who have lost their teeth and have insufficient bone for conventional implants. It also describes the anatomy and biomechanics of the zygoma, the imaging techniques for planning and placing the implants, the possible reactions of the sinus, the contraindications and complications of the procedure, and the prosthodontic aspects of the restoration. This book also presents several new surgical techniques and adjunctive procedures that can make zygomatic implants more minimally invasive and effective. This book is a comprehensive and updated guide for clinicians who want to use zygomatic implants to rehabilitate edentulous patients.
