If you’ve been researching dental implants, or you’ve had a consultation and you’ve been advised against traditional implants, you may have come across zygomatic implants. Zygomatic implants offer an alternative to conventional devices for patients who aren’t able to tolerate standard implants.
Zygomatic implants are dental implants, which are anchored by the zygoma (the cheekbones), rather than the jaw bone. This type of implant is used to replace missing teeth in the upper arch, and it may be recommended for patients who don’t have sufficient strong bone tissue in the jaw bone to support a traditional implant. Zygomatic implants are secured into the zygoma, and the new tooth is then attached to restore the smile.
Zygomatic implants work in a similar way to traditional implants, but they are longer, and they are located in the cheekbone, rather than the jaw. The implants reach up to the cheekbone, and once in place, a new tooth can be fitted. Once the new tooth is ready, it will look and function like a natural tooth. No foods are off-limits, and you won’t be able to tell the difference between the replacement tooth and the remaining natural teeth.
Zygomatic implants are an excellent treatment option for patients who have lost teeth from the top arch, and they offer an alternative for those who have been advised against conventional implants. With zygomatic implants, you can enjoy the benefits of implant treatment without having to undergo sinus lifting or bone grafting. With this treatment, you can also enjoy same-day results, as in most cases, the new teeth can be fitted on the same day as the implants. Implants produce long-lasting results, they create beautiful, natural-looking aesthetics, and they enable you to eat, speak, and smile with added confidence.
