What Are Zygomatic Implants?

If you have severe bone loss in your upper jaw, many dentists can only place dental implants in the front of your mouth to avoid damaging your sinuses. With zygomatic implants, your doctor may be able to bypass these concerns by attaching them directly to your cheekbones.

Zygomatic dental implants are an exciting new alternative to traditional dental implants. Unlike traditional implants, zygomatic dental implants attach to the zygomatic bones, also known as your cheekbones. This makes them an excellent solution for patients with severe bone loss in their jaws due to oral disease or having waited too long to replace their teeth. This is an advanced procedure offered by only the best board certified oral and maxillofacial surgeon in Scottsdale, AZ.

Who Is a Candidate for Zygomatic Implants?

Zygomatic implants are highly specialized and are ideal for people who have been told they aren’t a candidate for All-On-4 or full arch dental implants in the past. They are also a possibility for patients with failed implants or who have worn dentures for 20 years or more.

Bone loss is one of the top reasons a patient may not be eligible for traditional dental implants. Bone loss occurs when you lose one or more teeth, and your body begins to reabsorb your bone. However, the bones in your cheek never reabsorb into your body. If you have been wearing dentures for more than 20 years or have been missing teeth for an extended period of time, zygomatic implants may be your best option.

Benefits of Dental Zygomatic Implants

If you are dealing with significant bone loss, zygomatic implants will most likely be the fastest and least invasive to replace your teeth. Benefits of this procedure include:

  • Less invasive than procedures requiring a sinus lift
  • Gives you same-day, natural-looking results
  • Can restore proper speech and chewing function fast
  • Can last several decades
  • Have a high success rate
  • Reduced discomfort compared with more invasive alternatives
  • More stable and easier to care for than braces

I couldn't be happier with my all-on-4 dental procedure, it has changed my life! After struggling for so long with failing teeth, it was hard to believe that I'd ever be able to smile with confidence again. In one day I gained a smile, my forever smile that I don't regret! The staff at ProSmile Dental Implant Center made me feel so welcomed and deleted any fears or concerns that I had! If you're struggling with failing teeth this is definitely the place to go!

My whole expierence has been life changing. It was smooth, it was streamlined, I had no worries. Any issues I did have I would talk to the doctors and they would alleviate any concerns I had and explain everything. The quality of life and eating is so much better and the ability to just talk to people and not be self concious is great.  For anyone who is scared to go to the dentist, don't be. I was terrified and coming in really alleviated that fear.

I had the All-On-4 procedure, which is the full set on both top and bottom. They were very thorough explaining in depth what the procedure is and telling me not what I wanted to hear but what I needed to hear. Life now is more normal than before. There are no restrictions and my diet became what it used to be. There is no more hot and cold discomfort. I can call any of the staff and they always answer my questions. I 100% came to the right place.
