Edentulous patients looking for prosthetic rehabilitation of the upper maxilla are often faced with time-consuming, invasive, and uncomfortable bone grafting procedures. The All-on-4® treatment concept has been able to offer these patients an Immediate Function full-arch, implant-supported prostheses. However, some patients present with advanced atrophy and are not candidates for the All-on-4® treatment concept. These patients would benefit from the zygoma concept to provide immediate function of the maxillary arch.
In this two-day course, participants will learn how to assess and select patients for the zygoma concept. A comprehensive surgical and restorative protocol complemented with digital planning will be presented to the participants. The participants will have the opportunity to observe the completed surgical and restorative rehabilitation of patients from planning to delivery of the final prosthesis. Upon completion of this program, the participants will be able to select, plan and treat patients using the zygoma concept.
This interactive program will take place over two sessions (June 10 and June 11). In these two sessions, there will didactic, lecture and live patient surgery. Attendees will also be assigned hands-on exercises.
This program is aimed at clinicians familiar with common edentulous treatments who would like to progress to more complex edentulous treatment modalities and develop their clinical competencies.
