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.
