Zygomatic Implants

Some patients have significant bone loss in their jaw. If this is your situation, you may have been told that you are not a candidate for dental implants.

But with new technology called zygomatic and pterygoid implants, almost all patients are now candidates for dental implants.

Zygomatic and pterygoid implants are secured to the cheekbones (zygoma) instead of the jawbone. They are placed through an incision within the mouth. They can often be used to immediately hold a complete, modified denture. This allows for immediate chewing of a soft diet.

The success of zygomatic implants to fuse to bone is approximately 98%.

We are pleased to provide this advanced technique. We like it because it makes dental implant placement accessible to patients with excessive bone loss. It eliminates the need for extensive bone grafting.

This is an outpatient surgery performed in the operating room under general anesthetic. The recovery time is usually three to five days.

It takes about three months for the bone to fully fuse to the implants. Once that occurs, your dentist can make a final set of screw-retained teeth. Then you can resume a full and normal diet.

Contact us and we will have one of our trained professionals get back to you as soon as possible.
