Maxillary defects that occur after trauma are highly challenging for the maxillofacial surgeon to reconstruct and rehabilitate. The aim of rehabilitation is not only to provide a cosmetically acceptable appearance, but also to restore oral functions. Zygomatic implants are not only an alternative to complex free or vascularised bone grafting but are also used when these techniques have failed. However, implant placement in the zygoma is difficult due to the variable anatomy following trauma in the maxillofacial region.
