There are normal dental implants and there
are zygomatic dental implants, Our doctors may have asked you to go for an
zygomatic dental implants because Zygoma implants are different from
conventional dental implants in that they anchor in to the zygomatic bone
rather than the maxilla.
zygomatic dental implants work?
implants attach to the area of the jawbone close to the zygoma bone. After the surgery, fixed teeth can be
replaced after three days. The common recovery time after this procedure is
about four months. After this time, a
final restoration can be applied to completely finish the operation.
The Zygomatic implants are seen as better
than conventional dental implants in some ways.
- Zygomatic implants does not require bone grafts which can
take up to half a year to heal.
- If you wanted dental
implants but you are not a candidate because of a lack of supporting bone, then
our team will advise you to go for Zygomatic implants.
What are Zygomatic Implants, and how are they used?
- Zygomatic implants are longer
than ordinary dental implants and engage the very strong bulk of bone that
forms the cheekbone.
- Zygomatic implants can be used
as an alternative to complex bone grafting operations, making it possible to
carry out surgery in just one simple stage.
- Depending on bone
availability we may only need to use one or two Zygomatic implants, along with
2-4 ordinary dental implants to support the restoration.
- In cases where bone has further
diminished in availability, up to 4 Zygomatic Implants may be used to achieve a
stable support for restorations.
- In particularly challenging
cases where the jaw is exceptionally damaged by advanced bone loss /
destruction, we will design and make implantsspecifically for your particular
Benefits Of Zygomatic
- Although Zygomatic implants are
considerably longer than conventional implants, the treatment is very similar
from the patient’s perspective.
- Our placement of Zygomatic is
minimally invasive, using our image guided surgery to produce a precise replica
model of the upper jawbone meaning we do not have to carry out a wide surgical
