Zygomatic and Oncology Dental Implants

The longer lengths and 55° restorative platform of Zygomatic and Oncology implants, in the treatment of patients with a severely resorbed maxilla and/or missing maxillary bone, enables zygomatic bone to be utilised and ensures optimal restorative platform emergence.

Challenge

Following traumatic accidents, oncology resections or congenital defects, patients present with missing sections of bone and connecting soft tissue. These situations can pose significant physical and psychological effects on the patient.

Innovation

55° Zygomatic Implants were introduced by Southern Implants in 2002 to accommodate a higher angle for the restorative table to be in the arch and not the palate providing prosthetic versatility.

More recently, Southern Implants expanded the 55° Zygomatic Implant range with the Oncology Implant and Zygan™ Implant.

The Oncology Implant has a a 15mm threaded apex and a coronal machined surface that can be exposed to soft tissue in oncology resections.

The Zygan Implant features a Narrow-Apex with a smooth mid-section and MSc threaded coronal region. This implant is especially useful in patients with smaller anatomies.

Benefits

  • 55° optimizes prosthetic versatility
  • Machined sections for exposed soft tissue and decreased rotations
  • Narrow Apex Available for smaller patients and easier placement

Technical Facts

  • External Hex connection with 2.7 width and .7 height
  • 55° angle correction
  • Zygomatic available in 35mm-60mm
  • Oncology available from 27.5mm-47.5mm
  • Zygan has a 2.8mm apex
  • 4.0mm prosthetics

Nazalus Implants Brochure
Download PDF In a severely resorbed maxilla Zygomatic Implants can be used to make use of the zygomatic bone. Similarly, Nazalus Implants enable use of the maxillary bone surrounding the nose. The implant site begins in the alveolar bone at the pre-molar and ends in the bone separating the maxillary sinus and nasal cavity. The specialized implants need to be extra-long to span across the sinus and they need to be angulated at 24°. Therefore the prosthetic axis of the implant is designed at 24° to the implant body (the Co-Axis™ concept) and the implant is available up to a length of 24mm.
