Zygomatic Implants Gives Hope To
Patients With Extremely Low Upper Jaw Bone

Zygomatic Implants

Severe dental bone loss can be a significant obstacle for patients seeking dental implants. Traditional implants require a certain amount of bone density to be successful, and bone grafting may be necessary to achieve the desired results.

However, zygomatic implants have emerged as a revolutionary solution for patients with severe dental bone loss. This upper jaw bone loss could be due to trauma, congenial defect (since birth), fungal infection like mucormycosis.

In this article, we will explore the benefits of zygomatic implants and why they are an excellent option for those who may not be candidates for traditional implants.

What Are Zygomatic Implants

Zygomatic implants, are also known as zygoma implants, is a type of dental implant that uses the zygomatic bone instead of the maxilla (upper jawbone - used for traditional implants) for support.

The zygomatic bone is located in the cheekbone area and provides a stronger foundation for dental implants. This technique has been used for over two decades and has a high success rate, making it a popular alternative for those who are not candidates for traditional implants.

When are Zigomatic Implants Needed?

Zygomatic implants are typically recommended when patients have severe bone loss in the upper jaw and are not suitable candidates for conventional dental implants. 

Patients who may benefit from zygoma implants include those who have been told they are not candidates for traditional dental implants, and those who have experienced significant trauma or injury to the face or jaw.

Post zygomatic implants placement, patients can get any type of teeth like implant supported bridge or all on 4 Implants. 

What Are Benefits of Zygomatic Implants

Teeth Even in Extreme Bone Loss

Most significant advantage of zygomatic implants is that they are a viable option for patients with severe dental bone loss, where traditional implants may not be possible.

No Need for Bone Grafting

Since Zygomatic implants use the zygomatic bone (cheek bone) instead of the jaw bone for support, there is no need for bone grafting, which is often necessary for traditional implants.

No Sinus Lift Needed

Zygomatic implants no sinus lift is needed. This is because the zygomatic bone is located above the maxillary sinus and provides sufficient anchorage for the implant, even in cases where there has been significant bone loss in the upper jaw.

Higher Success Rates

Research has shown that zygomatic implants have high success rates, with one study reporting a success rate of 97.5% over a 10-year follow-up period. Zygomatic implants are not a fall back option but a complete solution.

Can be Combined With Regular Implants

Most zygomatic implants treatment make use of flexibility that comes with conventional implants, simply because they both can be used in conjuction. 

Faster Teeth

Zygomatic implants provide immediate results, as the teeth can be attached on the same day as the implant surgery(theoretically). As there is no need to wait for osseo-integration (integration of implant with bone).
