Implant Placement on the Cheekbones

Zygomatic implants are a specialized form of dental implant for individuals with significant bone loss in the upper jaw, particularly where implants cannot be securely anchored. Unlike conventional implants that rely on the available bone density for stability, zygomatic implants are anchored in the zygomatic bone, also known as the cheekbone. This provides a stable foundation for dental prosthetics, bypassing the need for bone grafting procedures that can be lengthy and invasive.

Advantages of Zygomatic Implants

  • Eliminates the need for bone grafting procedures
  • Provides a stable foundation for dental prosthetics
  • Suitable for individuals with severe bone loss in the upper jaw
  • Enables full-arch restorations and single-tooth replacements
  • Streamlines the treatment process and reduces recovery time
  • Offers a reliable solution for patients deemed ineligible for traditional implants
  • Restores oral function and aesthetics effectively

Why Zygomatic Implants Are Done

Zygomatic implants are usually pursued due to the challenges posed by severe bone loss in the upper jaw. In some cases, traditional dental implants may not be feasible due to inadequate bone volume. By anchoring directly into the sturdy zygomatic bone, these implants offer a stable foundation for dental prosthetics, bypassing the need for extensive bone grafting. This streamlines the treatment and reduces patient discomfort and recovery time.

Moreover, zygomatic implants enable individuals to regain oral function and aesthetics. Whether for full-arch restorations or single-tooth replacements, these implants provide a reliable solution for patients who were previously deemed ineligible for traditional implants.

With zygomatic implants, individuals can experience restored confidence in their smiles and enjoy the benefits of a permanent tooth replacement, enhancing their overall quality of life.

Who Is A Candidate for Zygomatic Implants?

You are a candidate for zygomatic implants if you suffer from severe bone loss in your upper jaw, making traditional dental implants unfeasible. If you require full-arch restorations or single-tooth replacements but lack the necessary bone volume, zygomatic implants offer a viable solution. You might be a good candidate for zygomatic implants if:

  • You have severe bone loss in your upper jaw.
  • You require full-arch restorations or single-tooth replacements but lack bone volume.
  • You have been deemed ineligible for dental implants due to inadequate bone density.
  • You want to restore your smile without bone grafting procedures.
  • You want to restore both oral function and aesthetics.
  • You are in good general health and do not have any contraindications for dental surgery.
  • You are committed to maintaining proper oral hygiene and attending regular dental check-ups.
  • You have realistic expectations regarding the outcomes and limitations of zygomatic implants.

The Complete Zygomatic Implants Process

The process of getting zygomatic implants involves several steps to ensure successful placement and integration. Firstly, you will undergo a thorough evaluation, including dental imaging such as CT scans, to assess your jawbone and determine the optimal placement of the implants. Next, your oral surgeon will administer anesthesia to ensure your comfort.

Once you are comfortable, the implants will be placed into the zygomatic bone using surgical techniques. In some cases, additional conventional implants may also be placed in the remaining bone for added support. After the implants are in place, your dentist will attach temporary prosthetics to facilitate healing and allow you to maintain oral function.

Over the following months, the implants will fuse with the surrounding bone through osseointegration, providing a strong and stable foundation for your permanent dental prosthetics. Finally, once the healing process is complete, your dentist will attach your custom-made dental restorations, restoring your smile and oral function.
