About the Webinar

The ultimate dental implant challenge is the reconstruction of the severely resorbed Maxilla especially in patients with multiple previous failed attempts at dental implant placement and full-arch implant rehabilitation.

Zygomatic implants were first used for reconstruction of large Maxillofacial defects, now they are commonly used in patients with terminal dentition with atrophic Maxillary bone to provide implant-retained fixed and removable prosthesis utilizing the Zygomatic bones to anchor the dental implants. 

This course is a comprehensive, detailed, step-by-step lecture that will cover the Zygomatic Implant Surgical and presurgical planning, surgical procedures, and protocols including multiple techniques commonly utilized to place and restore these implants.

Learning Objectives:

  • Treatment planning and patient selection
  • Assessment for the rehabilitation of the atrophic maxilla
  • Learn anatomical and x-ray interpretation connected with the placement of zygomatic implants
  • Discuss the surgical protocol for conventional and extra-maxillary placement of the zygomatic dental implants
  • Discuss restorations, impressions and related laboratory work
  • Review common pitfalls and complications related to zygomatic implants.

He completed his postdoctoral residency training in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery along with an additional year of General Surgery and a fellowship in Head and Neck Tumor and Reconstructive Surgery.

He devotes most of his clinical practice to the comprehensive treatment of trauma and tumor-related facial reconstructive surgery, as well as surgical correction of TMJ disorders and obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and orthognathic surgical correction of craniofacial deformities and placement of all-on-four and zygomatic dental implants and is also involved in extensive clinical research involving Bisphosphonate Induced Osteonecrosis of the Jaws (BIONJ). 

While in private practice he was also involved in medical rescue missions and relief efforts. He helped in the extensive repair of craniofacial congenital and acquired deformities of adults and children through several non-profit foundations “Mission Rescate” and “Operation Changing Lives” in the Dominican Republic and Haiti and other medically underserved areas.
