“Few people know how zygomatic implants could help them”
In the interview after the surgery, Manuel has been very happy, and has smiled during the whole conversation.
He told us that he was to his family doctor, from CAP (national health centre in Spain) and the doctor asked him how he was doing after the zygomatic implants surgery. The patient’s response was “very well”. The main concern of the family doctor was to know where the surgeon placed the implants because he knew that our patient suffering from severe maxillary atrophy and doesn’t have a lot of bone in the upper part of the mouth. Manuel, our patient, explained to him that the ZAGA technique implies to place long implants up in the zygomatic bone. At that moment his doctor was surprised, he was unaware of this type of rehabilitation. As a doctor, of course, he knew about the zygomatic bone but he didn’t know that is possible to place dental implants up there.
Manuel thinks there are few people who know it and he told us an anecdote about a young doctor that was completely surprised about the intervention and didn’t know exactly how to act at the moment that the patient came to her for a prescription. Manuel told us that when he entered into the consultation office… she wanted to call the ambulance because of course, she saw him with those bruises. The young doctor asked what had happened to him and if he needed an ambulance.
At the end of this interview, our patient, Manuel concludes that the treatment with zygomatic implants should be more popular because in this moment he doesn’t know so many people that are aware of this type of dental rehabilitation.
