Piezo technique on Zygomatic, Pterygoid, and Nasal implant use
One day course hands-on models
- Dr. Andrea Tedesco
- Odt. Luca Innocenti
- Dr. Luigi Grivet Brancot
Extreme atrophy of the upper jaw has always been an obstacle for implant-prosthetic rehabilitations, but the advent of zygomatic implants has opened new horizons for the solution of these complex cases while taking into account the surgical difficulties, intraoperative risks and possible complications. For this reason, the technique proposed by Andrea Tedesco is welcomed with great attention, using piezoelectric instrumentation to reduce both the risks and the complications of this sophisticated and attractive surgery. Subsequently, Mr. Luca Innocenti will talk about how to prosthetically deal with these complex cases from the classical approach to modern digital solutions. After the extensive discussion of the surgical-prosthetic bases, the practical part will take place in the operating room where participants will be able to perform zygomatic implant surgery with the aid of piezoelectric instrumentation first on stereolithographic models and then on human anatomical preparations under the guidance of the speaker. The anatomical preparations will be scanned before the exercise and, after inserting the zygomatic implants, the participants will be able to see their work directly on the CT image.

Odt. Luca Innocenti
Odt. Luca Innocenti graduated as a dental technician in 1985, he is a specialist in fixed and aesthetic prostheses, becoming a referent for the Cad / Cam Procera and Beta-Test Nobelbiocare system. Since 2010 he has been dealing with zygomatic implantology prostheses and in 2014 he wins as the best EAO poster of zygomatic implantology with Procera system. Awarded in 2016 at the Royal Society of Medicine of London, UK for the best work on zygomatic prosthesis, he collaborated in the writing of the book "Zygomatic implants: current events in the rehabilitation of atrophic jaws" by Dr. Andrea Tedesco.
