Zygomatic Dental Implants

Not enough bone for dental Implants? Zygomatic implants may be the solution!

Thanks to modern advancements 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. Some of the most experienced practitioners of this technique, our New Teeth Now surgeons, provide this treatment to patients suffering from bone loss on almost a daily basis.

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.

ReplacE All Your Upper Teeth

This will not be a solution for patients who only need one or a few teeth replaced. These specialized implants are a revolution for patients who have moderate, advanced and extreme resorption in the maxilla. In other words, zygomatic implants can replace all of your upper teeth despite having severe bone loss in your upper jaw. You can now get a new smile in one day with no need for bone grafts or sinus lifts.

Do Patients with Bone Loss Need Bone Grafting?

Not always. Before zygomatic treatment options were available, patients with bone loss in the upper jaw 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 and with no bone grafting.

Will Zygomatic Implants Hurt?

Patients experience no pain while having zygomatic implants placed at New Teeth Now, because they are asleep with general anesthesia during the entire procedure. A certified anesthesia professional (CRNA) monitors patients during surgery. Whereas extractions and implants can be an uncomfortable experience under IV sedation and local anesthesia, our use of general anesthesia means our patients will sleep through the process, allowing them to wake up ready for new teeth. It is the safest and most comfortable option for full mouth restorations. Pain prescriptions are available to help with recovery. But there is minimal post-surgery pain, with most patients only taking over-the-counter medications like Tylenol or Advil.

Recovery From Zygomatic IMplants

Recovery from the zygomatic dental implant procedure is very similar to the traditional dental implant procedure. The ease of recovery surprises many of our patients. Some patients experience bruising around the lower eyelids, though this varies by person. Generally, 3-5 days after the procedure you will be able to return to your daily routine.

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 functional, lasting teeth that can vastly improve your health and happiness.
