WHAT CAN BE DONE IF AN IMPLANT IS NOT SUCCESSFUL?
There are few options to deal with the unsuccessful placement of a zygomatic implant. It is our firm belief that in the great majority of cases, patients who lose their teeth and have severe atrophy in their maxilla have only ONE opportunity to treat this tooth loss with fixed teeth, so the process has to be performed right on the first try. This is why it is best to rely on a center that is highly specialized in the restoration of extreme maxillary atrophy with zygomatic implants.
CAN THERE BE COMPLICATIONS?
As with all surgeries, there is always a potential for complications, so you should ask about your specific case in order to be informed of these in detail. Generally, however, the ZAGA method prevents oro-antral communication-related complications, which are common with other methods. Compared to traditional zygomatic implant techniques, the dental prosthesis used in the ZAGA method takes up a natural space in the mouth, as its dimensions are very similar to those of original teeth, which helps improve aesthetic aspects, maintenance and hygiene.
ARE ALL ZYGOMATIC IMPLANTS THE SAME?
There are differences among the zygomatic implants that are currently available on the market. It is worth pointing out that, in addition to the surgical procedure, the design and composition of the implant to be used is also important in order to maximize the long-term success of the treatment. For this reason, results and potential complications vary widely depending on the materials and methodology used.
The ZAGA platform not only advocates for adapting the technique to each individual patient, but for adapting the implant’s design to the patient. Some of the benefits to ZAGA zygomatic implants are that their dimensions can adapt to the very complex cases of people who have severe atrophy, such as with female patients, and that placing these implants requires a less invasive procedure. ZAGA Centers give preferential access to implant procedures and other ZAGA designs.
