ZAGA Centers Network partners with Top Dental Universities globally to support research in the field of Zygomatic Implants
November 5th 2020
The ZAGA Centers Network proudly announces new collaborations and the creation of a network of scientific partners globally. ZAGA Centers is a network of excellence in zygomatic implant rehabilitation for patients suffering from severe maxillary atrophy. The 45 certified dental offices collaborate to provide their patients with the safest, most efficient edentulism solution. Based on the ZAGA Concept, the treatment approach is minimally invasive and adapts to the anatomy of each patient (and each zygoma).
Zygomatic implant rehabilitation is a growing treatment option for severe maxillary atrophy and partial zygoma rehabilitation. As a solution for the lack of bone preventing regular dental implant placement, zygomatic implants allow the professional to deliver fixed teeth in 24h. The research and development focused on zygomatic implants have received high interest over the past years with increasing peer-reviewed publications and industrial products. The recent publications show that zygomatic implants are safer and more efficient than block grafting when treating severe atrophy. On top of that, the ZAGA Concept recent developments support a minimally invasive approach and provide tools and protocols to enhance the success rate even further by preventing complications.
“Research is the distance between an idea and its realization”David Sarnoff, Pioneer of radio and television.
This is why the ZAGA Centers partner with a network of top dental universities globally to investigate, research, and create better science and education over the coming years in the field of zygomatic implant rehabilitation. The scientific partners of the network include today:
