¿What are zygomatic implants?
Zygomatic implants and pterygoid implants are implants that double or even triple in length from traditional implants.
The length of zygomatic implants ranges from 30 to 50 millimeters. The length of pterygoid implants, on the other hand, is between 15 and 20 millimetres.
Doctors Jorge Caubet and Miguel Ángel Morey are the first to apply the Quadruple Zygoma technique.
When is the placement of zygomatic and pterygoid implants indicated?
Their indication refers to those patients who present an insufficient quantity or quality of bone for the placement of the most common implants.
Due to their special length, these implants reach the cheek bones. These bones are ideal due to their density and hardness.
Which patient is indicated for this type of treatment?
The most suitable patient for this type of treatment is one who has significant bone resorption in the jaw.
Doctors Miguel Ángel Morey and Jorge Caubet are maxillofacial surgeons with more than twenty years of experience in advanced surgery and placement of zygomatic and pterygoid implants.
