HANDS-ON TRAINING: ZYGOMATIC, NAZALUS, TRANS-SINUS & PTERYGOID IMPLANTS WITH Z.M.I.T. ZYGOMATIC MINIMALLY INVASIVE TECHNIQUE
HANDS-ON TRAINING: ZYGOMATIC, NAZALUS, TRANS-SINUS & PTERYGOID IMPLANTS
WITH Z.M.I.T. ZYGOMATIC MINIMALLY INVASIVE TECHNIQUE
This course will provide intensive hands-on surgical training, in the use of Zygomatic, Nazalus, Trans-sinus and Pterygoid implants for the treatment of severely atrophic maxilla, using the conventional as well as the Zygomatic Minimally Invasive Technique (Z.M.I.T) with piezoelectric instrumentation.
Surgical Anatomy and Principles of Zygomatic Implant Treatment including alternative techniques, such as maxillary sinus grafting and 3D-customised implants will be presented by two leading oral surgeons: Prof. Cemal Ucer and Prof. Andrea Tedesco.
The course has been structured for those wishing to introduce zygomatic implants into their practice, with the safety of piezosurgical technique designed to minimise the risk of catastrophic collateral damage occurring to vital anatomical structures such as the orbit, pterygoid and infratemporal fossa and the surrounding blood vessels and nerves.
The hands-on skills development workshop will include the placement of Southern zygomatic, nazalus and pterygoid implants on 3D-printed models using the Minimally Invasive Piezo Technique developed by Prof. Andrea Tedesco in Italy and first presented in the UK at the Zygomatic 2019 Conference in London.
- Develop skills to incorporate minimally invasive Zygomatic Implant treatment using Dr Andrea Tedesco’s piezo instrumentation
- Develop a good understanding of the use of Zygomatic, Nazalus, Trans-sinus and Pterygoid implants used for the graft-less reconstruction of the atrophic maxilla
- Refresh your knowledge of the surgical anatomy of the face
- Learn the ZAGA Zygomatic Implant success code and long-term results
- Learn how to assess, diagnose, interpret CBCT imaging and use 3D digital planning for Zygomatic and Pterygoid implants for the rehabilitation of the atrophic jaw
- Discuss indications and contraindications for Zygomatic implants
- Develop skills in surgical procedures for the placement of site-specific implants to avoid staged bone grafting
- Develop an understanding of alternative techniques including maxillary sinus grafting, 3D customised implants and patient-specific bone grafts
- Receive training and support from a team under the mentorship of two leading oral surgeons: Prof. Cemal Ucer and Prof. Andrea Tedesco.

Cemal Ucer, a specialist Oral Surgeon, graduated from Manchester Dental School in 1982. He established a private hospital referral practice for implantology in 1988. Cemal’s research and clinical interests include the role of major bone grafting in the success of implants, 3D-surgical navigation, GBR and sinus grafting surgery as well as rehabilitation of the severely atrophic maxilla with Zygomatic, Trans-sinus, Pterygoid and 3D-printed customised implants. Cemal has been running a nationally renowned multi-system PG Cert course in Implantology since the 1990s. He has a professorial appointment as the Clinical Lead of the MSc programme in Dental Implantology at the University of Salford and directs the ICE/University of Salford Advanced Certificate courses in Bone and Tissue Regeneration & Sinus Grafting and Full Mouth Oral Implant Rehabilitation.
Prof. Ucer has contributed to the scientific literature with numerous guidelines, position and research papers, as well as general peer-reviewed publications. He was a co-author of the ADEE position paper on CPD Education in Implant Dentistry in Europe (2014) and a member of the panel that revised the FGDP Training Standards in Implant Dentistry (TSID, 2016). Cemal is a past president (2011-2013) and honorary life member of the Association of Dental Implantology (ADI), a Fellow of the International Team for Implantology (ITI), Fellow of the British Association of Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeons (BAOMS), Fellow of the Faculty of Dental Trainers at the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh and a member of the Faculty of Examiners for the RCSEd Diploma in Implant Dentistry.
