Zygomatic implants are positioned in the upper jaw in cases where there isn’t enough bone for regular dental implants. These revolutionary implants provide support for bridgework where there has been a significant amount of bone loss from the upper jaw and regular implants are unable to support a bridge alone.
Kissdental is one of the few practices in the UK to provide this outstanding procedure.
About zygomatic implants
Zygomatic implants are longer than traditional dental implants and are anchored to the upper jawbone that forms the cheekbone, also known as the zygomatic arch. These implants are often used as a substitute for complex bone grafting, so it’s possible to carry out the procedure in one single stage.
We typically use two zygomatic implants in addition to 2-4 traditional implants. If bone availability is particularly limited, we may use four zygomatic implants.
Before implant surgery begins, you’ll require a scan to assess how much bone is available in your upper jaw. This will allow us to plan your zygomatic implant treatment.
