With success rates ranging from 95% to over 98%, zygoma implants are the standard of care in the treatment of patients with severe maxillary bone atrophy who cannot be rehabilitated with surgical bone augmentation and/or the placement of conventional or tilted implants. Because patients who qualify as candidates for zygoma implant therapy usually get only one chance to regain their masticatory function, the stakes for this treatment are very high, and that is why Dr Arun K. Garg undertook this project. Written by distinguished authors with decades of clinical knowledge, the book equips the experienced implant surgeon with comprehensive knowledge of every facet of the surgical and prosthetic treatment protocols for zygoma implant therapy, from patient evaluation and selection to step-by-step procedures and the management of complications, building the reader’s knowledge from start to finish. Learn the ins and outs of zygoma implant therapy so you too can deliver this life-changing therapy to your patients.
