ZAGA Zygomatic Implant Course
By Dr. Carlos Aparicio, MD, DDS, DLT, MSc, MSc, PhD
The Reference in Zygomatic Implant Education
The ZAGA zygomatic implant course describes our experience of more than 25 years with zygomatic implants in the rehabilitation of the extremely resorbed maxilla. The course lasts three days of intensive zygomatic implant journey. The participants acquire knowledge regarding the use of this advanced treatment in different anatomies. Furthermore, they learn about related prosthetic rehabilitation. Also, we review different surgical techniques, their benefits, and their limitations, including the classic intra-sinusal technique, the extra-sinusal technique up to the ZAGA philosophy. Precisely, we provide detailed insights into the latter to prevent surgical and prosthetic complications. Live surgery, along with immediate prosthetic delivery, takes place with live comments. Moreover, the course includes zygomatic planning and hands-on training in customized artificial phantoms. Finally, surgical training on cryopreserved human heads takes place to finalize this zygomatic implant course.
The ZAGA Course is a long-running 3 days educational course. For 10+ years and with 99%+ satisfaction, the Course covers zygomatic implant rehabilitation from start to finish, including the ZAGA Concept. On top of the 3D model hands-on, each participant follows a learning path from the DICOM files, 3D model rehearsal, and hands-on cryopreserved severely atrophic donor head. The faculty includes Dr. Carlos Aparicio and Prof. Dr. Pedro Clarós.
