If you’ve been told that you’re not a suitable candidate for traditional dental implants, you don’t have to give up on the dream of a beautiful smile. Zygomatic implants may be an option worth considering if conventional implants aren’t a viable option.
Zygomatic implants are dental implants, which are anchored into the cheekbones (the zygoma), rather than the jawbone. With zygomatic implants, you can take advantage of the dense tissue in the cheekbones, eliminating the need for bone grafting or sinus lifting. This treatment is suitable for patients who are looking to replace missing teeth from the upper jaw.
Zygomatic implants are longer than traditional dental implants and this can make them suitable for a wider range of people. In some cases, there’s a lack of dense bone tissue available in the jawbone to support a dental implant, and grafting may be required. With zygomatic implants, you can have the smile you want without the need for grafting.
Zygomatic implants are placed under sedation or local anaesthetic. It is possible to place new teeth and implants on the same day, but often, there will be a gap between treatment sessions. The treatment plan will be designed with the individual patient in mind, and sometimes, a combination of standard and zygomatic implants will achieve the best outcome.
