Zygoma Implant-Supported Prosthetic Rehabilitation of a Patient After Bilateral Maxillectomy.
J Craniofac Surg 2015; 26(7):e620-2JC

Abstract

Maxillectomy defects may vary from localized to extensive soft and hard tissue loss. In addition to physical and psychologic damages, functional and aesthetic aspects must be restored. This clinical report describes the rehabilitation of a patient with a zygoma implant-supported obturator prosthesis caused by a subtotal bilateral maxillectomy due to a squamous oral cell carcinoma. Prosthetic rehabilitation of this patient was performed after zygoma implant surgery. A maxillary obturator prosthesis supported by 2 osseointegrated zygoma implants was fabricated. Despite limited mouth opening and anatomic deficiencies, the patient's aesthetic and functional demands were fulfilled.
