The Science behind the ZAGA Concept

Discover the origins of the ZAGA Concept, as well as all peer-reviewed publications supporting it. From the first book by Dr. Carlos Aparicio to collaborative studies with the network of ZAGA Centers.

ZAGA is more than just a method, it is a philosophy of how we work with patient well-being as one of its core principles. Each patient’s individual characteristics and needs are the main elements considered when designing a treatment plan and deciding what materials or implants will be used.

By anchoring the dental prosthesis to zygomatic implants, the ZAGA philosophy aims to achieve long-term success in treating severe maxillary atrophy. In addition to maximizing success, the ZAGA philosophy seeks to prevent complications instead of treating them. To obtain these objectives through a standardized process, the ZAGA philosophy develops and uses individual, contrasted, and systemized action protocols.
