The zygomaticomaxillary region offers a large amount of cortical bone that can be obtained simply and safely using the precise and selective cutting properties of a piezosurgical device. A block from this area fits nicely into anterior or premolar maxillary recipient sites and is thus the ideal choice, as no secondary surgical field is needed. As in conventional sinus bone graft procedures, the complication rate is minimal and after a 5-month healing period, the augmented region can be used for stable and esthetic oral implant placement.
