Pikos Symposium 2023

Preventing and Managing Full Arch Disasters
(with Dr. Costa Nicolopoulos)

The zygomatic implants represent a valid alternative to regenerative surgery of severe maxillary atrophies. With a right clinical indication and a correct training for the operator it is possible to treat complex cases with immediate loading to reduce the patient’s discomfort.

Actually the classic technique with burs and intrasinusal approach is very destructive way.

The Minimally Invasive Technique developed by Author, using piezoelectric dedicated inserts, helps the surgeon to realize an easy surgery, less demolishing, more predictable because the osteotomy preparation is always outside the sinus, totally using the piezoelectric strumentation.

Learning Objectives:

  • Treatment alternatives for the atrophic maxilla
  • Graftless procedures using zygomatic implants
  • A new piezoelectric approach for zygomatiuc implants
