Nowadays, dental implants are one of the most popular procedures performed in clinics.
To be a candidate for dental implants, it's necessary to cover some requirements, and the most important is a good bone structure. Some patients have to undergo bone graft surgery to become candidates for dental implants, and sadly for others, a dental graft isn’t enough.
But now, thanks to advancements in technology Zygomatic Implants are now available. Let’s take a moment to discuss the Zygomatic Dental Implants, and explain why you may need them.
What Are Zygomatic Implants?
Zygomatic implants are a new alternative that avoids grafting and sinus lift procedures and therefore contribute to a shorter and more comfortable treatment. These implants are anchored in the upper jawbone, which is close to the dense zygoma bone (cheekbone).
Zygomatic Implants are much longer in comparison with traditional implants, which are drilled directly into the jawbone.
Zygomatic Implants take the anchorage from the zygoma bone, which is denser in quality and more cortical in nature than posterior maxillary bone and is found in the back part of the upper jaw.
One of the main goals of these types of implants is to provide a secure foundation for people with deteriorated jaws who cannot undergo traditional implant surgery.
If you are deciding about getting implants, here you can find the main differences between traditional and zygomatic implants.
How Do Zygomatic Implants Work?
Like we said previously, the Zygomatic Implants are attached to the area of the jawbone close to the zygoma bone.
The extra-long implant is placed from inside the mouth near the location of the bicuspid teeth, it goes through or right next to the sinus and anchors into the thick and solid zygomatic bone.
The common recovery time after this procedure is about four months in length. After this time, a final restoration can be applied to completely finish the operation.
By the end of this period, patients can enjoy their new set of teeth.
Advantages of Zygomatic Implants
Regular implants allow the patient to feel and look better after the procedure is done, and while they have many advantages.
Zygomatic Implants cover all of them plus a couple of more:
- Zygomatic implants do not require bone grafts, which usually take around six months to heal, delaying the eventual dental implants you need.
- They allow people who would ordinarily have to go through a great deal of surgery to get their implants sooner.
- They allow an immediate loading of the prosthesis and therefore immediate aesthetics.
- Restored smiles, improvement in chewing and speaking
- They are usually placed using an immediate loading protocol
Are There Any Complications?
It's always important to make previous research and go to your dentist of trust.
An appropriate pre-surgical diagnostics and evaluation of the sinus as well as using the extra-sinus surgical approach and immediate loading of the implants can reduce or even eliminate any kind of complication related to the Zygomatic Implants.
