ALVES, N. Morphometric Analysis of Anatomic Landmarks Involved in Surgical Technique of Zygomatic Implants Placement. Int. J. Morphol. [online]. 2013, vol.31, n.3, pp.986-990. ISSN 0717-9502.

The aim of this study is to provide morphometric data of bony structures involved in the surgical technique of zygomatic implants, thus providing information to facilitate the planning and implementation of this procedure. Considering the average values obtained in our study, we conclude that the greatest thickness of the zygomatic bone is in the middle of the bone. We suggest that the upper anchorage of zygomatic implants should not extend to the posterior margin of the zygomatic bone, since the bone thickness at this level does not offer suitable conditions for osseointegration of implants.

Keywords : Zygomatic implants; Morphometry.
