"The Failing Maxilla...Do We Have to Graft?"



Craig A. Sirota, DMD, MMSc


Dr. Craig Sirota attended the State University of New York at Binghamton where he obtained a Bachelor of Science degree in 1987. Dr. Sirota subsequently went on to the Harvard School of Dental Medicine and received his Doctor of Medical Dentistry degree in 1991, as well as his specialty certificate in Prosthodontics and a Masters of Medical Science degree in 1998. Dr. Sirota returned to New York in 1999 to establish his private practice. He is dedicated to his patients and prides himself on the individualized, comprehensive prosthodontic care provided to each of his patients. Dr. Sirota is also a former Clinical Assistant Professor at New York University College of Dentistry's Arthur Ashman Department of Implantology. Since 2000, Dr. Sirota has been a participant in the Donated Dental Services program, which provides dental care to those who do not have sufficient resources. Dr. Sirota is a member of the ADA, NYCDS, ACP, GNYAP, and AO and has lectured throughout the country on conventional and implant prosthodontics.



Successful prosthetic rehabilitation of patients with severe maxillary bone loss resulting from tooth loss or implant failure is often compromised by the inability to obtain sufficient skeletal anchorage for implant placement.  The most common way of treating this situation is with extensive bone regeneration procedures, four to eight implants, and multiple restorative visits.  What if there was a way to predictably restore the maxilla with a single, non-grafting surgical approach that allowed for consistent implant placement in an ideal restorative position and shortened treatment time.  By utilizing the zygomatic implant and osseous support beyond the oral cavity, we can accomplish this.  This presentation will demonstrate the close interaction between the surgical and prosthetic teams necessary to plan and execute the zygomatic immediate load protocol.  Long term data will be presented supporting the use of zygomatic implants as a first line treatment.         


Lecture participants will have gained an understanding of:

1) The treatment indications for using the zygoma implant

2) The surgical and prosthetic techniques when using the zygoma implant

3) The predictability of the zygoma implant as a non-grafting solution for the failing maxilla



This planned educational program will include the use of a Keynote presentation, multiple case reviews, and a question and answer session.
