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.
Unlike traditional dental implants, which require a long recovery period, the incredibly strong and dense bone in the zygomatic arch allows for replacement teeth to be added as your surgery is being undertaken. This also means that for patients who neither have enough bone structure for traditional implants nor for whatever reason can have a bone graft or sinus lift surgery, secure dental implants are a possibility, even if they are told by other clinics that there is no hope.
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. We will use our CT scanner to create a three-dimensional analysis of your mouth, bone density, gum and nerve health. This will allow us to plan your zygomatic implant treatment and ensure the ideal placement of dental implants to ensure they recover well and stay in place. We also then take photos and plaster models, to find the ideal length and placement of the implants.
As the operation is more complicated than traditional implants, the operation is undertaken under general anaesthetic. After the surgery a temporary replacement will be fitted immediately, and our dental technician will construct a permanent restoration.
