Who Are Zygomatic Implants Suitable For?

If you have previously been told that you have insufficient bone in the upper jaw for dental implants then zygomatic implants are the solution for you.

Zygomatic implants are a type of dental implant specifically designed for patients who have experienced significant bone loss in their maxilla (upper jaw).

Unlike traditional dental implants that are placed directly into the jawbone, zygomatic implants anchor into the dense cheekbone, known as the zygoma.

Avoidance Of Bone Grafting

Zygomatic implants eliminate the need for bone grafting, which is often required to build up the bone volume in the upper jaw.

Bone grafting procedures can be time-consuming, involve multiple surgeries, and require lengthy healing periods.

Zygomatic implants provide a more efficient alternative by utilizing the existing zygoma bone, saving patients from additional surgeries and reducing overall treatment time.

Immediate Functionality
Immediate Functionality

Immediate Functionality

With zygomatic implants, patients can enjoy immediate functionality.

Traditional dental implants typically require a healing period of several months before the prosthetic teeth can be attached.

Zygomatic implants, on the other hand, provide stability and support right from the start, allowing patients to have functional and aesthetically pleasing teeth soon after the procedure.

Reliable Solution For Severe Bone Loss

Zygomatic implants offer a reliable solution for individuals with severe bone loss in the upper jaw, a condition that would otherwise make traditional implants unfeasible.

By anchoring directly into the zygomatic bone, which is denser and stronger than the maxillary bone, zygomatic implants provide exceptional stability and long-term success rates.

Dental problems resulting from severe bone loss can significantly impact a person's quality of life.

Zygomatic implants address these issues by providing a reliable and durable solution. They restore proper oral function, including chewing and speaking abilities, while also enhancing the appearance of your smile.

With zygomatic implants, individuals can regain their confidence and enjoy a better overall quality of life.

Minimally Invasive Procedure
Minimally Invasive Procedure

Minimally Invasive Procedure

Although zygomatic implants may sound complex, the procedure itself is minimally invasive.

It is performed under local anaesthesia and sedation, and involves precise placement of the implants into the zygomatic bone through a small incision in the gum.

The minimally invasive nature of the procedure reduces post-operative discomfort and promotes faster healing.
