The course will demonstrate strategies to transition efficiently from the conventional approach in Orthognathics and Reconstruction procedures, to virtual planning and patient specific tools and implants. Experienced orthognathic surgeons will also share how they progressed their technique from using 3D printed splints only to incorporating 3D printed titanium plates in the maxilla and mandible. The course will also cover:

There is now over twenty years of surgical implants into the zygoma. This presentation will review the original surgical protocol and the changes in surgical protocol that have led to immediate loading and immediate function of zygoma implants. The key surgical and prosthetic considerations for successful outcomes will be discussed. There have been changes both in the macro and micro structure of the zygoma implants. This presentation will outline how this has affected the surgical decision-making process. Virtual planning and CAD-CAM technology has led to significant improvements in diagnosis, treatment-planning and surgical management to minimise risk. Zygoma implants have had incredible success rates and these will be discussed along with management of complications.
