Course Overview

Learning about All-on-4® treatment concept for extreme cases and zygomatic implants: Designed for experienced clinicians, this advanced course will present a unique partial or complete alternative to bone augmentation in the severely atrophic maxilla using the Zygoma implant. Successful prosthetic rehabilitation of patients with severe bone resorption in the maxilla is often compromised by the inability to obtain sufficient anchorage for the prosthesis. Such patients seek a permanent solution that involves minimal surgical procedures and reduced treatment time, without sacrificing their expectations of success.


  • Attend a Cadaver course run by Harpal Chana and Graham Smith on day 1.
  • Consider the indications and contraindications for the zygomatic implant.
  • Explore pre-treatment planning, including anticipation of the provisional prosthesis.
  • Observe live surgical placement of zygomatic implants*.
  • Associated prosthetic solutions pertaining to the zygomatic implant.
  • Explore the steps in converting the patient’s existing denture into an immediate-load, fixed prosthesis.
  • Practice hands-on placement of zygomatic implants.
  • Discuss maintenance of zygomatic implants and how to manage complications.
  • Review supporting scientific literature and clinical evidence of zygomatic implants.
