Zygomatic Implants


Been Told You Can’t Have Implants?

The loss of a tooth can have a devastating effect on your oral health and self-confidence. Not only will it make you conscious of your smile, but gaps between teeth become prime spots for the bacteria that cause tooth decay and gum disease to make their home.

Over time, the underlying structure of your jaw can also be affected. Without the tooth’s root anchored into the jaw, the bone will start to weaken. Neighbouring teeth may gradually drift into the space too, leading to further complications.

Dental implants are the most effective solution for filling these gaps. However, in some cases, the underlying bone may not be strong enough to sustain the pressure of the implant.

In these cases, we’d recommend an alternative – the revolutionary zygomatic implant.


What Are Zygomatic Implants?

Just like standard dental implants, zygomatic implants are titanium rods that are used to replace the roots of your upper teeth. Where they differ from regular implants is that the rods are longer and are designed to access the denser zygomatic arch, which is the upper jawbone that forms the cheekbone.

Using these, we can anchor bridgework in cases where regular implants could not.

Zygomatic implants are an innovative alternative to complicated bone graft or sinus lift procedures, which can often take months to heal before your implant can be placed. Using this technique, we’re able to place your implant in one stage.

Where traditional implants take time to heal, zygomatic implants allow us to add your replacement teeth immediately as part of the same procedure.

How Are Zygomatic Implants Placed?

Usually, we’ll place two zygomatic in conjunction with two or four traditional implants. In cases where there is only a limited amount of bone, we’ll use four zygomatic implants.

We’ll carry out initial assessments to determine how much bone is available. A CT scan will give us a full 3D picture, allowing us to carefully plan the optimal placement.

We’ll carry the procedure out under general anaesthetic, so you won’t feel a thing. Once the implants are in place, we’ll place a temporary restoration right away. But don’t worry, your temporary teeth will still look great and function well.

Next, our skilled dental technicians will get to work on your permanent restoration. As soon as these are ready, we’ll get you back in to place them.

What Are the Benefits of Zygomatic Implants?

The biggest benefit of zygomatic implants is the rigid support they provide your teeth. Once you’ve got dental restorations anchored in place with this type of implant, you’ll be able to bite and smile with confidence again.

In the past, insufficient bone density would have meant a long wait between a bone graft treatment and the actual implant procedure. Often, this can take as long as 18 months. Thankfully, zygomatic implants solve this problem in just one procedure.

Without the underlying support of an implant, there is a risk that the bone beneath a dental prosthetic such as a traditional denture may collapse. Zygomatic implants prevent any loss in facial structure, improving your appearance as they do so.
