About Zygomatic Dental Implants
Traditionally, if you did not have sufficient bone mass in your jaws, the only option was bone graft surgery to regenerate and/or rebuild enough bone mass to create a sufficient foundation for traditional dental implants.
Now there are revolutionary dental implant techniques that eliminate the need for bone grafting altogether. Zygomatic Implants are a graftless dental implant technique where the implant is directly embedded in your cheekbones (medically referred to as Zygoma), where there is enough bone support for the implants. This revolutionary approach is on par with other advanced techniques like Teeth in an Hour™. With zygomatic implants, your healing time is much faster and your total treatment time is minimal, as the implant placement is Computer Guided, so all of the planning is done before you get into the chair.
Typically, dental implant placement is the most difficult in the upper back region of the palate (top molars). Bone loss occurs more rapidly here when teeth are missing, and the presence of the sinus cavities creates yet another obstacle. In the past, in addition to bone grafting, a patient might have to have a sinus lift procedure as well, prior to getting his implants. The development of the Zygoma implant presents a unique alternative for patients who wish to avoid bone grafting, sinus lifts and still get dental implants, as the implants can be placed in areas with only one surgical procedure and eliminates the need for grafting
