When traditional dental implants are not possible for upper jaw restoration, zygomatic implants are the answer. There are myriad reasons for upper jawbone loss. The most common causes are age and bone loss to traumatic injury and the oral surgeon consultation will begin with evaluating the cause. Zygomatic implants are the most complicated of dental implant surgeries. Where some councils that traditional dental implants are possible only with bone grafts, zygomatic dental implants make restoration of teeth to the upper jaw possible.
Zygomatic implantation can be a complicated dental implant procedure. Yet it is a valid and most reliable treatment for candidates suffering from bone loss or a severely reabsorbed upper jaw, or for those who do not have enough bone to anchor a dental implant. ArkLaTex Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery’s team of oral surgeons is skilled in Zygomatic dental implants. A reliable and state-of-the-art solution for upper jaw restoration.
The procedure can require the placement of two zygomatic implants. The design is made for immediate attachment on fixed replacement teeth or bridges. In the upper jaw, two zygomatic implants are positioned on either side.
Zygomatic implants are longer than the traditional dental implant. As the name implies, the zygomatic implants insert within the zygomatic cheekbone. This procedure provides immediate stability. Zygomatic dental implants provide instant durability, and in many cases, you can receive same day new teeth.
This procedure avoids bone grafting to add support and durability for an implant.
