Zygomatic and Oncology Dental Implants
Osseointegrated Fixtures System — Bone Anchors for Facial Prosthetis
The Osseointegrated Fixtures system extends the use of osseointegrated implants from dental applications, to facilitate the attachment of prosthetics outside the oral region. Osseointegrated Fixtures have been developed to enable the attachment of external prostheses when suction or adhesives are inadequate.
Following traumatic accidents, oncology resections or congenital defects patients present with sections of bone and connecting soft tissue missing. These situations can pose a significant physical and psychological effects on the patient.
55° Zygomatic Implants were introduced by Southern Implants in 2002 to accommodate a higher angle for the restorative table to be in the arch and not the palate providing prosthetic versatility.
More recently, Southern Implants expanded the 55° Zygomatic Implant range with the Oncology Implant and Zygan™ Implant.
The Oncology Implant has a a 15mm threaded apex and a coronal machined surface that can be exposed to soft tissue in oncology resections.
The Zygan Implant features a Narrow-Apex with a smooth mid-section and MSc threaded coronal region. This implant is especially useful in patients with smaller anatomies.
- 55° optimizes prosthetic versatility
- Machined sections for exposed soft tissue and decreased rotations
- Narrow Apex Available for smaller patients and easier placement
- External Hex connection with 2.7 width and .7 height
- 55° angle correction
- Zygomatic available in 35mm-60mm
- Oncology available from 27.5mm-47.5mm
- Zygan has a 2.8mm apex
- 4.0mm prosthetics
