Zygomatic Implants

Zygomatic implants are used when there is inadequate bone available in the upper jaw for dental implants. They are longer in length and instead of relying on the jawbone for fusion, they extend past the upper jaw and anchor into the cheek bone (zygomatic bone).

Zygomatic implants reduce the need for bone grafting. Only Oral and Maxillofacial surgeons have the skills and adequate training to carry out this procedure. The treatment is performed under anaesthetic as day surgery and a full set of immediate teeth can be connected to the implants on the same day of surgery.

Some of the benefits of zygomatic implants are:

  • Improved appearance.
  • Improved speech.
  • Improved self-esteem.
  • Normal looking teeth and gums.
  • The freedom to eat what you like.
  • Teeth that don’t come out.
  • The elimination of denture sore spots.
  • Long term tooth support.
  • Faster healing than bone grafting.
  • Low maintenance.
