The EZgoma guide is an apparatus for the placement of zygomatic implants previously planned by a dedicated software. The guide provided two separate supports for two ZIs on one side (Figure 6). Each support had a cylindric form divided into two parts (upper support on the buccal part and lower support on the palatal part). The lower support worked with the upper support creating an efficient system to avoid the bending momentum due to the rotational movement of the bur during drilling, which also allowed the alignment of the burs to the cylindric body.

The 3D printed titanium surgical guide provides the support for the burs. Attention is paid to the supports which are designed in two parts, as upper and lower, in order to allow the surgeon to have a comfortable approach and to avoid a bur’s stop.
