Purpose. Different surgical approaches for zygomatic implantology using new designed implants are reported. Material and methods. The surgical technique is described and two cases reported. The zygomatic fixture has a complete extrasinus path in order to preserve the sinus membrane and to avoid any post-surgical sinus sequelae. Results. The surgical procedure allows an optimal position of the implant and consequently an ideal emergence of the fixture on the alveolar crest. Conclusion. The surgical procedures and the zygomatic implant design reduce remarkably the serious post-operative sequelae due to the intrasinus path of the zygomatic fixtures.
