Implant Anchored in the Zygomatic Bone for High Torque

Richard Gawel


The Norris Medical Zygomatic implant is placed following the extramaxillary protocol, which is a modification of the traditional Brånemark technique. The implant is anchored in the zygomatic bone for high torque. The implant prosthetic platform is being shifted buccally to a more appropriate position of the restoration. The design of the Zygomatic implant is an unthreaded body ending with an aggressive thread at the apical part of the implant. A special drill design allows the clinician to create a clean tunnel preparation with minimal risk of membrane damage, Norris Medical reports. It offers 45°, 52°, and 60° angle multi-unit abutments that will provide the angle correction needed.
