The ZAGA method​

The ZAGA method consists of a series of techniques, materials and action protocols used by the various professionals involved in treating severe maxillary bone atrophy. It takes a systematic approach to optimizing results by anchoring a fixed dental prosthesis to zygomatic implants. The ZAGA method is based on a systematic classification of the patients’ different anatomies. This classification helps identify the anatomy of each patient and therefore allows for treatment, its protocols and materials to adapt to it. This makes surgery less invasive and problematic, and more successful, drastically increasing the success rates of the treatment compared to traditional techniques.
In contrast to these traditional zygomatic implants techniques, the ZAGA method reduces the chances of sinus infections almost to zero. One of this method’s main objectives is to avoid problems or complications that derive from gum recession and implant exposure, common in extra-maxillary (or extra-sinus) methods. The dental prosthesis used with the ZAGA method occupies a space that is very similar to where a patient’s original teeth would normally be, which helps attain a more aesthetic and lasting structure. With the ZAGA method, fixed teeth can be placed in patients with severe maxillary atrophy in just one day, without the use of grafts or donor sites.
