Zygomatic Dental Implants

Everything You Need to Learn About Zygomatic Implants

Zygomatic implants help individuals whose upper jaws are severely resorbed. The treatment helps get immediate access to dental bridges. When a case is more complex and severe, two zygomatic implants can be placed on each side of the patient’s upper jaw to provide adequate support to the upper set of replacement teeth. Zygomatic implants also help patients with a cleft palate.

At Richardsons Dental and Craniofacial Hospital, we offer guided zygomatic implants to help patients restore their speech and swallowing functions. Whether you’re planning zygoma or dental implant surgery in India, contact Dr. Sunil Richardson to guide you through every step.

What Are Zygomatic Implants?

A zygomatic implant helps anyone with extreme maxillary resorption. The implants are inserted into the cheekbone or the zygomatic bone to support the teeth in the upper jaw, dentures, and bridges. Being an incredibly dense bone, the zygoma proves very supportive for a patient’s dental implants. Compared to a conventional dental implant, a zygoma implant takes longer and is not anchored to the dental arches inside an individual’s mouth. Since the bones in the cheeks are solid, the immediate stability of zygomatic implants is high, which is why the replacement teeth can be placed on the same day of the surgery.

Benefits of Zygomatic Implants

The advantages of getting zygomatic implants are as follows:

No Requirement FOR Bone Grafting

Before zygomatic implants were introduced, bone grafts were needed for those suffering from upper jaw bone loss to maintain their dental implants’ position. It used to take anywhere between six to twelve months for the bone grafts to get healed before a dental implant could be introduced. Fortunately, with the introduction of a zygoma implant surgery, bone grafting was no longer needed, allowing the patients to smile wide post-implantation surgery.

Zygomatic Implants

No Sinus Lifts Needed

Before getting an implant, one had to get a sinus lift operation after losing mass in the upper jaw. A sinus lift surgery strengthened the bone between the sinus and the mouth cavity so that the implant did not hurt the sinus cavity. As the medical procedures kept evolving, sinus lifts weren’t needed since the process was quicker and more simplified.

Boosts Self-Confidence

A zygomatic implant takes place straight into the cheekbone, which is why the effect is immediate. It improves the possibility of even biting on hard food. Therefore, with the reduced waiting time associated with healing, the patient feels more confident as time passes.

High Success Rate

The success rate of a zygomatic implant is more than 97%, making it almost the same as normal dental implants. Additionally, it is not uncomfortable for the patient to get it done. A guided zygomatic implant is also beneficial to replace the teeth in one’s lower and upper jaws. Get in touch with us to learn about zygomatic implants cost and more.
