New NobelZygoma implants an excellent option for treating severe maxillary resorption without bone graftsFor patients with severe maxillary resorption, extensive grafting procedures can mean lengthy treatment times. But there is an alternative. By anchoring in the zygomatic bone, the NobelZygoma implant system can enable an immediate loading protocol for a graftless treatment. It also offers a broad choice of prosthetic options. This dramatically shortens time-to-teeth for increased patient satisfaction, and allows patients with severely resorbed maxillae to return to a normal quality of life.
