Pterygoid implants are used to avoid zygomatic implants in some of the cases when anterior placement of 4 implants is possible in anterior maxilla.it can sometimes also be used to convert allon4 cases inti allon6 so as to have fixed ceramic/zirconia prosthesis which sometimes is not possible with allon4 technique
pterygoid implants are routinely used in our DENTISTRY DENRAL CLINIC for all our maxillary full mouth cases and also in some cases of posterior maxillary implant placements
we use special pterygoid implants from NORIS MEDICAL which has an exclusive design for these implants
