The use of zygomatic implants for the rehabilitation of atrophic maxillas with 2 different techniques: Stella and Extrasinus

      The zygomatic implant anchorage is a surgical technique that provides a new perspective for patients with severe maxillary atrophy, increasing predictability and reduced cost of treatment, besides being a tool for the hardships of the rehabilitation of such a challenging region. This article describes 2 clinical cases with zygomatic implants with different techniques (Stella and Extrasinus) and both with immediate loading and accompanying clinical radiographic follow-up procedures of 12 and 24 months, respectively.
