Zygoma implants are utilized in patients with limited upper jawbone for conventional implants. Zygoma implants are longer and fixed in the cheekbone, not the jawbone. This method allows dental implant patients to avoid bone grafting. After installation, implants can support prosthetic teeth, making it a faster solution.

1. Why Zygoma implant?

Dental science’s constant evolution has produced many oral health remedies. Dental implants are a popular solution for tooth loss or severe dental injury. Traditional dental implants work well for most people. However, those with insufficient upper jaw bone may not benefit. The dentistry industry developed the Zygomatic implant for such patients.

Zygoma implants, named after the zygomatic bone (or cheekbone), are more robust and longer-lasting dental implants for upper jaw bone loss sufferers. Zygoma implants extend beyond the jawbone and anchor in the solid zygomatic bone, giving a sturdy basis for artificial teeth.

2. Who needs Zygoma Implants?

Patients with substantial upper jaw bone loss from periodontal disease, trauma, aging, or denture use benefit most from zygoma implants. When traditional dental implants cannot be supported by bone, Zygomatic implants can help. They also benefit patients who cannot or do not want to undergo bone grafting to develop enough bone for standard implants.

3. What are the benefits of Zygoma Implants?

They offer immediate function and aesthetics, making Zygomatic implants beneficial. Implants allow same-day provisional prosthesis implantation, allowing patients to eat, speak, and smile confidently.

Zygomatic implants remove bone grafting, lowering treatment time and complications. They last longer because they are fixed in the zygomatic bone, which resists resorption.

4. What is the Zygoma Implant Method?

Zygomatic implant is more complicated than standard implants and requires specialist training. Depending on the patient’s needs and bone quality, one or two zygomatic implants are placed on each side of the upper jaw.

The surgery usually requires general anesthesia. The implants are precisely inserted into the zygomatic bone through careful planning and modern surgical methods to optimize load distribution and reduce problems.

In short, Zygomatic implants have changed how dentists treat severe upper jaw bone loss. Their ability to give immediate function and aesthetics, prevent bone grafting, and provide a permanent, long-term solution has opened a new path for individuals previously unsuitable for dental implants. However, given the complexity of the process, an expert Zygomatic implant dentist is needed for the best results. Always remember that healthy smiles are lovely!
