Articles Implants In Your Cheekbone: How Zygomatic Implants Provide the Hope of New Teeth
Have you been told that traditional implants aren’t the best option for you? If so, we may have a solution. Zygomatic implants offer an alternative for patients who don’t have sufficient bone tissue in the jaw to support a conventional implant.
What are zygomatic implants and could they be the answer for me?
Zygomatic implants are implants that are anchored by the cheekbone, rather than the jaw bone. To support an implant, you need strong bone tissue. If you haven’t got sufficient tissue or the bone lacks density, the implant may fail. For this reason, your dentist may recommend bone grating or using a zygomatic implant. Zygomatic implants can be used to support implants attached to new teeth in the upper arch. If zygomatic implants are a viable solution, you can have the treatment you need without grafting.
Zygomatic implants are an excellent solution for patients who cannot tolerate traditional implants, as well as those who would rather opt for an alternative to dentures. Implants have long-term benefits, they enhance the appeal of the smile and they give you the same level of stability as a healthy, natural tooth. You can smile with confidence, and you don’t have to give up your favourite foods.
How are zygomatic implants fitted?
Zygomatic implants are placed under local anaesthetic or sedation. Your dentist will explain exactly what is going to happen and when the effects of sedative or anaesthetic have become apparent, they will drill a small hole in the bone and fix the implant. In many cases, the implants and the new restoration, for example, a bridge, can be fitted in a single treatment session. This means that you can start enjoying your new smile without delay.
If you’re interested in dental implants, but you’ve been advised against conventional implants, zygomatic implants could offer an excellent alternative. Call us today to find out more.
