When the quality and quantity of bone in the upper jaw is insufficient for the successful placement of conventional dental implants, zygomatic dental implants provide the required stability and support to rebuild a complete smile with implant-supported crowns, bridges, and other dental prostheses.
With zygomatic dental implants, there’s no need to perform additional surgical procedures such as bone grafting or sinus lift procedures to increase the volume of bone required for successful implant placement. What this means is that patients, who are not candidates for bone augmentation or sinus lifts, can still enjoy the benefits of an implant-based solution to reestablish their smiles.
While conventional dental implants are placed directly into the jawbone, zygomatic dental implants are placed in the zygomatic bone, which is more commonly known as the cheekbone. Located on the left and right side of the upper jaw, the cheekbones have the inherent strength and density to provide ample support for zygomatic dental implants, which once placed are immediately stable enough to support restorations.
