Have you been advised against having dental implant treatment? If so, don’t give up hope just yet! With zygomatic implants, we may be able to offer you a brilliant alternative.
What are zygomatic implants?
Zygomatic implants are implants, which are placed inside openings in the zygoma (the cheekbones) rather than the jaw. These implants are often recommended for patients who are not suitable candidates for conventional implants due to a lack of strong, dense bone tissue in the jaw. Zygomatic implants are easier to tolerate than traditional implants, and they can often be a solution for patients who are hoping to replace missing teeth in the upper arch.
The benefits of zygomatic implants
Dental implants offer a wide range of benefits for patients who have lost their natural teeth, but they’re not always suitable for everyone. If you don’t have a strong jaw and plenty of dense tissue available to support a new implant, your dentist may advise you against dental implants or urge you to consider treatment after bone grafting. With zygomatic implants, it’s possible to enjoy the benefits of implant treatment without the need for grafting. These include:
With zygomatic implants, you can talk, eat and smile without any anxiety at all and you can feel confident every time your smile is on show for many years to come.
