If you have been told that you are not a candidate for dental implants due to bone loss there is another solution. Zygomatic implants are beneficial to patients that have experienced severe bone loss. In most cases we are able to give patients same day teeth significantly reducing the time, expense, and the number of surgeries compared to regular dental implants.
Zygomatic dental implants help patients avoid grafting and prolonged waiting to get traditional dental implants and teeth. This procedure is done in order to allow enough bone for the implants to be placed and can have a long recovery time.
With traditional implants, patients could have to have multiple surgeries and still may not have the teeth placed the same day depending on how stable the implants are. Having zygomatic dental implants placed will avoid the grafting process which means the length of the procedure will decrease.
Zygomatic implants anchor in the jaw bone and the zygomatic bone and have a high success rate. Depending on the bone quality of the patient, either two zygomatic implants are placed, or four. Having zygomatic tooth implants placed means a patient will have same day teeth delivered on the day of surgery 99% of the time.
