“The best way to progress in zygomatic implant rehabilitation is by joining efforts.”

Dr Carlos Aparicio is the creator of the ZAGA method and philosophy, an innovative systemic approach to the treatment of patients who present a lack of maxillary bone necessary for the fixation of an implant.

The creation of the ZAGA method made him a well-known global expert in the complex technique of zygomatic implants, which consists of oral rehabilitation in the face of dental loss by means of prostheses fixed to the jawbone.
Dr Carlos Aparicio’s approach consists of a series of techniques, materials, and action protocols, used by various professionals, and allows tailoring the surgeons’ activity to the patients’ specific needs and anatomy. Additionally, he is the creator of the ZAGA classification, a cross-sectional survey aimed to study and classify zygomatic implant cases.

Graduated in Medicine and Surgery from the University of Navarra, he completed his training in implants, prostheses and dental aesthetics in the USA, Canada, Switzerland, and Sweden. Also, he is the honorary president and founder of the Spanish Society of Minimally Invasive Dentistry and director. In addition, he collaborates with the University of Barcelona and the University of Gothenburg. They design all together on the zygomatic implants programs.
