      Zaga Case Report

      Significant Bone Loss With Sinus
      Extended to Distal of 12.

      The following pictures correspond to a patient treated by Dr. Costa Nicolopoulos at SameDay Dental Clinic, the ZAGA Center Dubai. The prosthetic work was performed by Dr. Fokion Iatridis & Dr. Ramy Tamzouk.

      The patient presents a significant bone loss # 16-13 (3-7) and sinus extends to distal of #12 (7). Also, in this case, we are talking about a patient with a past medical-surgical history of larynx cancer (2017) treated with surgery & radiotherapy (DXT).

      Dr. Costa tried bilateral ZYGAN implants but LHS had buccal-palatal mobility despite good primary stability. Also, OAC was inevitable on the left so he removed it but managed to perform internal sinus lift on the left & very good zygomatic bone on the right without OAC at the crest thanks to Versah/Densah zygomatic drills. All implants are > 100 N.cm primary stability.

      In this case, we note that the optimized position of the zygomatic implant on the ridge is made possible by two elements: the 55º angle in the implant head (Southern Implants) and by following the ZAGA Concept.

      Diagnostic & Planning

      Final Situation

      Post Surgery

      Dr. Costa Nicolopoulos and Dr. Petros Yuvanoglu are in charge of coordinating the treatment of patients suffering from severe maxillary atrophy using zygomatic implants and the ZAGA philosophy. The treatment adapts to each patient, from patient care to the anatomical positioning of the implant. Using the ZAGA technique, patients recover with fixed teeth in 24 hours.
