What are Zygomatic Implants?
This dental treatment is intended to replace all the teeth of the upper jaw when there is a significant bone structure loss of the jawbone. It is a recommended procedure for patients who are not candidates for traditional dental implants or other restorative treatments, like the All-On-4.
They are called zygomatic implants because, instead of being inserted into the maxillary bone, they are attached directly into the zygomatic bone, also known as cheekbone. This bone is much denser and is generally not affected by pathologies that cause a mass loss in the jawbone. For this reason, it offers a good anchor point for dental implants.
This type of implant can restore the aesthetics of the smile, the functions of the teeth, and even the facial features that are deformed when the structure of the maxillary bone is lost, so the patient can simile confidently again and enjoy good dental and overall health.
