Perspectives on Zygomatic Implants
Edited by Anastasiya Quimby, Salam Salman

The aging population of the United States is expected to continue to increase and reach the milestone of outnumbering children in 2035 as projected by the US census data. This generation of older adults is leading an active lifestyle, and quality of life is an important consideration. Although the dental field has been making a transition to a more preventative approach and maintenance of natural dentition, a significant proportion of this population has been managed in a less conservative fashion. Moreover, with age, the likelihood of developing a pathologic lesion requiring surgical resection also increases. While complete dentures and maxillary obturators were accepted as a gold standard prior to dental implant development, with the advent of implant-supported prostheses, few patients are content with the conventional dentures or ill-fitting obturators. In order to satisfy what undoubtedly is going to be an increasing demand for fixed prostheses, oral and maxillofacial surgeons should be well equipped with skills to offer comprehensive oral rehabilitation.
