Zygomatic Minimally Invasive Technique: the Piezoelectric Approach

The zygomatic implants represent a valid alternative to regenerative surgery of severe maxillary atrophies. With the right clinical indication and correct training for the surgeon, it’s possible to treat complex cases with immediate loading reducing the patient’s discomfort.
The Zygomatic Minimally Invasive Technique developed by Andrea Tedesco using piezoelectric dedicated inserts helps the surgeon to realize an easy surgery, less invasive, more predictable because the osteotomy preparation is totally performed using the piezoelectric instrumentation.

Learning Objectives:
• Learn a new technique for zygomatic implants
• Learn about the use of piezoelectric instrumentation for the preparation of the implant site
• Understand the potential of the piezoelectric approach in the management of severe atrophies

Dr. Andrea Tedesco Biography
Dr. Andrea Tedesco is a specialist Oral Surgeon and is an expert in Zygomatic Implant Dentistry and has recently published a book on this topic “Gli impianti zigomatici: attualita’ nelle riabilitazioni implanto-protesiche dei mascellari atrofici”. He’s recently devised a new minimally invasive technique for the use of zygomatic implants associated with Piezoelectric Surgery.

To date, Dr. Tedesco performed 200 implant surgeries with the use of zygomatic implants. He qualified in Dentistry and specialized in Oral Surgery at the University of Florence, Italy and studied internationally. He completed a clinical residency on the ‘all on 4/zygoma’ technique with Dr. Paulo Malo in Portugal, and another one on zygomatic implants with advanced surgical techniques with Prof. Chantal Malevez in Bruxelles. In addition, he received a Postgraduate Diploma at the Oral and Maxillofacial Department of Guy‘s and St. Thomas Hospital, London.

In July 2014 he completed an Oral and Maxillofacial Program on the implant-prosthetic treatment of severe maxillary atrophy in cancer patients with zygomatic implants, Oral and Maxillofacial Manhattan Clinic, Dir. Prof. Dr. David Silken, New York, USA. Dr. Tedesco is a Fellow Member of the Royal Society of Medicine, London, and a member of the European Association for Osseointegration. He won a prize for the Best Presentation at The Royal Society of Medicine in London in January 2016 with a presentation on “The treatment of atrophic maxilla using zygomatic implants.
