Articles Did You Know That Zygomatic Implants Can Be Used With no Bone Grafting?
Dental implants are wonderful, but they’re not always a viable solution for tooth loss. If you’ve been told that you’re not a suitable candidate for dental implants as a result of a lack of dense bone tissue in the jaw, you don’t have to give up on your dreams of a stunning smile. We may have just the solution you’ve been looking for in the form of zygomatic implants. Zygomatic implants may be a suitable alternative if you’ve been advised to undergo bone grafting or if you’ve been told that traditional implants wouldn’t be successful.
What are zygomatic implants?
Zygomatic implants are longer than traditional dental implants and they are anchored by the bone in the cheeks rather than the jaw. Fitting zygomatic implants can eliminate the need for bone grafting and make implants an option for people who don’t have strong enough bone tissue in the jaw. The implants can be placed and the new teeth fitted on the same day, so you don’t have to hang around to start enjoying your new smile. In most cases, two zygomatic implants are used to support a new bridge. These implants are suitable for replacing missing teeth from the top arch.
Am I a good candidate for treatment?
If you have missing teeth in the upper arch and you’ve been advised against traditional implants or told you would need bone grafts to support implants, zygomatic implants may present an alternative option. If you’re keen to find out more and see if you are a good match for treatment, we encourage you to get in touch and book a consultation.
