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.
Usual means of attaching external aesthetic prosthesis include adhesives, mechanical (attached to spectacles) and suction (fitting sockets). Sometimes the remaining anatomy or the patient’s lifestyle affects the efficiency of the adhesion and often the attachment simply cannot adequate retention and the prosthesis is prone to falling off, exposing the patient to significant embarrassment. In these cases an implant may be indicated to provide retention of the prosthesis.
The Osseointegrated Fixtures system includes a wide range of implant sizes to fit the wide range of sites they may be used in. The ultra-short craniofacial implants can be used in the thin facial bones and the longer cylindrical-bodied implants fit well in the medullary canal of phalanges. All the implants are self-tapping with an enhanced surface.

Nazalus Implants Brochure
In a severely resorbed maxilla Zygomatic Implants can be used to make use of the zygomatic bone. Similarly, Nazalus Implants enable use of the maxillary bone surrounding the nose. The implant site begins in the alveolar bone at the pre-molar and ends in the bone separating the maxillary sinus and nasal cavity.
The specialized implants need to be extra-long to span across the sinus and they need to be angulated at 24°. Therefore the prosthetic axis of the implant is designed at 24° to the implant body (the Co-Axis™ concept) and the implant is available up to a length of 24mm.
