Zygomatic Implants


What are Zygomatic Implants?

Zygomatic implants are a specialty modern implant technology designed for the replacement of teeth. With zygomatic implants, you can replace a full set of teeth for those who have teeth that have become severely decayed, or have lost their teeth and bone due to periodontal (gum) disease. For patients who have significant bone loss and may not be a candidate for traditional implants, zygomatic implants may be an option. They are designed to be implanted into the cheekbone, a stronger and denser bone than the jawbone, giving a sturdy base for teeth to anchor to.

What are the benefits of zygomatic implants?

Zygomatic implants have many benefits to one’s oral health and quality of life. As they go into the cheekbone, zygomatic implants can allow patients who have significant bone loss to have implants placed, when typically these patients would not be able to have regular implants. They can prevent the need for additional treatment and surgeries, such as a sinus lift and bone graft, to allow implants to be placed in the upper jaw. Since they are placed into strong, dense bone, often the restoration can be placed immediately, preventing the need for more surgeries or more healing time. With zygomatic implants, an entire arch of teeth can be restored, giving patients a drastic change in the appearance of their smile and their confidence. As a procedure with a very high success rate, patients can be confident that zygomatic implants are a great solution to missing teeth.

Who is a good candidate for zygomatic implants?

Have you been told you don’t have enough bone for dental implants or are not a candidate for dental implants? We have helped many people who thought they weren’t able to get dental implants. Zygomatic implants are great for individuals who may not be able to get normal implants due to bone loss, periodontal disease, or other factors. If a patient is looking to replace the full upper arch of teeth but does not want to deal with the hassles of dentures, zygomatic implants are a great solution. Additionally, patients who may need to have additional procedures to have implants placed, such as a sinus lift and bone graft, may be great candidates for zygomatic implants.

What does the process for getting zygomatic implants involve?

The process for placing zygomatic implants will begin with a consultation where the doctor will review your dental and medical history, along with getting imaging of the upper arch and facial area. During this time, a treatment plan will be made to fit with your specific goals for your smile. You will come in for the surgery, and will be provided with anesthesia to ensure your comfort throughout the procedure. The doctor will place the implants into the upper arch, securing them into the dense bone of your cheekbone. In one day, you will leave with a new, long-lasting smile.
