About Zygomatic Dental Implants

If you’ve been told you don’t have enough bone for dental implants, Dr. Elhage, Dr. El-Banhawy and Dr. Afshar can help.

Zygomatic dental implants are for patients whose bone quality or quantity is inadequate for the placement of regular dental implants. The procedure is a relatively new technique in dentistry, practiced by only a handful of talented doctors in the area, and allows patients with insufficient bone in the posterior upper jaw to receive implants.

Zygomatic Dental Implants

What are Zygomatic Dental Implants?
In some special cases, the upper jaw becomes deficient in bone. That is when zygomatic implants are required, which can be inserted into the cheekbone to derive support for a dental bridge. 

The benefits of these implants are as follows:
No need for extensive surgery for bone grafting
Reduced cost and duration of treatment
Only one surgery is required and the patient can have his/her new teeth on the same day of the surgery
For replacement of all the teeth, 4 implants are needed in total – two in the front and two Zygomatic Implants (one on each side)

Your present denture is used as a base to construct a temporary dental bridge made out of acrylic, and this covers the surgical area and helps in normal functioning till you receive your permanent prosthesis after complete wound healing. The healing takes an approximate period of 4 to 6 months after which a permanent hybrid bridge fabricated on a metal bar is placed in the mouth in place of the temporary bridge.

In order to replace all your teeth, typically 2 Zygomatic Implants are needed (one on each side) with 2 more implants in the front, for a total of 4 implants. A temporary, all-acrylic dental bridge is created from your existing denture, and this acts as a temporary while you heal from the surgery. After 4-6 months, a permanent hybrid prosthesis supported on a metal bar is created by your restorative dentist.
Who should consider Zygomatic Dental Implants?
Zygomatic dental implants are for patients whose bone quality or quantity is inadequate for the placement of regular dental implants. In most cases, anyone healthy enough to undergo a dental implant surgery can be considered for a dental implant. Importantly, this complex procedure should be done by a doctor with advanced training, skill, and expertise. You’ll find our dental implant specialists team meets all the requirements.
