Zygomatic Dental Implants
Not enough bone for dental Implants? Zygomatic implants may be the solution!
Thanks to modern advancement in the field of zygomatic dental implants, patients who have been told they are not candidates for conventional dental implants, or must settle for dentures, can be treated successfully by the surgeons at New Teeth Now. There are few surgeons in the world who have the skills and qualifications to competently place zygomatic implants. Two of the most experienced practitioners of this technique, New Teeth Now surgeons Dr. Harley Richards and Dr. David Kirkpatrick, provide this treatment to patients with bone loss on almost a daily basis.
What Are Zygomatic Dental Implants?
Designed specifically for patients with bone loss, zygomatic implants are tilted and much longer than those used in traditional dental implant procedures. While traditional implants are placed in the jawbone, surgeons utilize the zygomatic implant’s length to securely place them in the patient’s cheekbone (zygoma). The zygoma is a very dense bone and provides excellent support for the lifetime of the patient.
Do Patients With Bone Loss Need Bone Grafting?
Before zygomatic treatment options were available, patients with bone loss would undergo a bone grafting process which commonly took six months to a year before implants could even be placed. This treatment also had a high failure rate. With the zygomatic implant placement, the board-certified surgeons at New Teeth Now routinely and successfully provide patients with full mouth restorations in one day with no bone grafting.
Why Consider Zygomatic Dental Implant Surgery?
If you would like dental implants but have been told that you are not a candidate due to X-rays showing lack of supporting bone in your upper jaw, you should consider zygomatic implants as an option. For those who previously could not enjoy the benefits of dental implants, the result is a new set of beautiful, functional, lasting teeth that can vastly improve your health and happiness.
