Zygomatic implants: the anatomy-guided approach/ by Carlos Aparicio
Quintessence Publishing, 2012

"This book reviews the zygomatic implant approach in its current state, including not only the successes and improvements, but also the possible complications and their eventual resolution. Thanks to this approach, extreme cases can have fixed dentition in very few hours, with no grafts, no general anesthesia, or morbidity from a donor site. Thus, a technique of relative complexity becomes a minimally invasive procedure, since its application minimizes and simplifies patient treatment. This book will help the healthcare provider to establish clear guidelines for the rational and optimized use of zygomatic implants in the rehabilitation of the edentulous patient."
