Zygomatic implants are a type of dental implant that you might have seen if you’ve been researching the possibility of getting them. This type of implant is still relatively new so you might not be familiar with how they compare to conventional dental implants. Here’s everything you need to know regarding zygomatic implant:
Replace Upper Teeth
Zygomatic implants are designed to replace upper jaw teeth. Zygomatic implants can replace entire archs of missing teeth, severely decayed or damaged teeth, and teeth that have fallen out due to severe periodontal diseases. Zygomatic implants can also be used to replace missing teeth or damaged teeth. Zygomatic implant can be used in conjunction with traditional dental implants to replace both upper and lower teeth.
Attached To The Cheekbone
Zygomatic Implants were named after the bone they were placed into. Zygomatic implants are placed into the zygomatic, also known as the cheekbone, to provide a secure anchor point. The zygomatic bone provides a strong anchor point and is denser than the maxillary bone. Zygomatic implants are much longer than traditional dental implant because they are placed in the cheekbone.
Can Be Used With Insufficient Bone Mass
A good bone mass is a prerequisite for implant treatment. Zygomatic implants can be safely placed in areas with poor bone quality or low bone mass. Zygomatic implants do not anchor into the maxillary bone, but are instead placed into the zygomatic bones. The zygomatic bone does not lose its bone mass due to missing teeth or periodontal diseases, unlike the jawbones.
Reduces The Need For Additional Procedures
Supplemental procedures are often necessary when dental implants have been placed in an upper jaw with low bone density. A sinus lift is a common procedure that thickens the bone between the sinus cavity and oral cavity to protect the sinuses from damage. The patient will need to wait for the sinus lift to heal before placing the implants. These supplementary procedures are not necessary for zygomatic implant. This means you will be able to get your implants sooner than expected.
