Four zygomatic implants may be used in patients with severe maxillary atrophy for rehabilitation with a fixed or removable prosthesis. Immediate loading is also typically performed, providing patients with a less invasive and more efficient solution for rehabilitation. Options for immediate loading are presented. The indications, contraindications, procedure, and complications are reviewed. Appropriate treatment planning and work-up are highlighted, as they are required for success in conjunction with advanced surgical skill. Scientific evidence, although lacking in quantity, suggests that the quad zygoma approach offers a predictable solution for the challenge of severe maxillary atrophy; high implant survival rates are noted.
