Diploma of specialization | Advanced implantology on maxillary buttresses

Galimplant organizes in collaboration with the University of Salamancathe modular course entitled: “Diploma of specialization in Advanced Implantology on maxillary flying buttresses”.


Javier Montero Martín, Stomatology Area, Department of Surgery


In many patients, due to advanced bone resorption, treatment with conventional implants cannot be performed with guarantees of success. The techniques traditionally used to rehabilitate patients with severe resorption, required long treatments (two surgeries, taking an iliac crest or calvaria graft …)so that once healed (between 6 and 12 months), conventional implants will be placed, prolonging the global treatment time to around 12 to 18 months.

Over time, studies carried out by Professor PI Bränemark and his group on a rehabilitation alternative for patients with total maxillary edentulism and severe bone resorption, described a surgical technique that has greater advantages over conventional techniques. With the development of this technique(which inserted zygomatic implants in the patient’s malars), the treatment time was shortened, even carrying out immediate loading (provisional teeth on the same day of the intervention), unlike traditional treatments. With this protocol, it has been shown that the degree of patient satisfaction increases considerably, which allows an improvement in their quality of life.

Currently, the literature strongly supports the use of zygomatic implants to rehabilitate the total edentulous patient with severe atrophy, there are also other flying buttresses in the atrophic maxilla that can be systematically used in the implant-prosthetic rehabilitation of the entire arch.

The main national and international references that have contributed to the development and refinement of this advanced implantology technique will participate in the theoretical-practical training of this degree.
