When there is insufficient bone in the upper jaw due to years of bone loss, implants can be placed in the cheekbone (or zygoma) and emerge in the mouth to anchor prosthetic teeth. This is typically performed as part of a treatment to replace all your upper teeth.
Zygomatic implants allow patients to avoid major bone grafting procedures, minimize treatment time, and allow immediate delivery of temporary teeth anchored to implants. They provide a tremendous benefit for patients who have been wearing ill-fitting dentures for years and are now seeking a permanent solution. It allows them to smile and chew confidently.
Getting Started with Zygomatic Implants
If you are interested in dental restoration but have been told that you are ineligible for traditional implants, we encourage you to visit our practice for a consultation. During this appointment, your surgeon will review your medical history, take 3D images, and confer with you about potential treatment possibilities.
Our doctors use advanced technology, including 3D navigation tools, to map out the procedure in advance, ensuring that your zygomatic implant placement happens with precision and predictability.
