Zygomatic implant treatment: a new Minimally Invasive Technique with piezoelectric strumentation

Dr. Andrea Tedesco, DDS – Oral Surgery Specialist

Fellow Research Oral Surgery Department, University of Pisa, Italy

Aim : The zygomatic implants represent a valid alternative to regenerative surgery of severe maxillary atrophies.

With a right clinical indication and a correct training for the operator it is possible to treat complex cases with immediate loading to reduce the patient’s discomfort. Actually the implant site preparation is still performed with long burs, difficult to control.

In addition, the classic intrasinual technique involves  the maxillary sinus, increasing the morbidity, the operating times, and other complications difficult to resolve.

The Minimally Invasive Technique developed by me with ESACROM, Imola Italy, using piezoelectric dedicated inserts, helps the surgeon to realize an easy surgery, less demolishing, more predictable because the osteotomy preparation is always outside the sinus, totally with use of piezoelectric strumentation.
