Zygomatic Implants: Understanding the Treatment

Share this article

Seaforth Oral Surgery is proud to offer a sophisticated procedure called zygomatic implants, also known as All-on-4 dental implants. Over the past five years, our surgeons have gained significant expertise in this technique, offering our patients an advanced solution for severe bone loss. In this article, we take a closer look at this revolutionary treatment by answering a few key questions.

What makes zygomatic implants different?

Zygomatic implants are a dental implant method used exclusively in the upper jaw (maxilla) when bone loss is severe. Unlike traditional dental implants, they offer an immediate functional transformation, enabling delivery of the fixed prosthesis on the same day as the implant surgery.

What are zygomatic implants?

Zygomatic implants are not fundamentally different from conventional dental implants. However, their anchoring mechanism is longer and is anchored in the dense bone that forms the cheekbone, offering a viable solution for patients with significant bone loss in the upper jaw.

Who should consider zygomatic implants?

If you’ve been turned down for a dental implant because of severe bone loss in the upper jaw, zygomatic implants could be the solution for you. They overcome the problem of insufficient bone volume by anchoring into the zygomatic bone.

What makes this procedure effective?

The effectiveness of zygomatic implants depends on the density of the zygomatic bone, providing a stable and predictable anchorage for the prosthesis. The procedure significantly improves quality of life by restoring chewing ability and eliminating the need for prior bone grafts.

Are you considering a zygomatic implant?

Many patients turn to this procedure to improve their quality of life. In addition to restoring chewing and speech function, zygomatic implants eliminate the need for bone grafts, enabling faster recovery and a restored smile in just a few hours.

Success Story

Our first patient to undergo this procedure declared herself “very satisfied” with the result, noting the minimal discomfort experienced and overall satisfaction with the treatment. After decades of dentures, she now benefits from a more permanent, easy-to-maintain solution.

In conclusion, zygomatic implants represent a major advance in oral surgery, offering an effective solution for patients facing severe bone loss in the upper jaw. If you would like to find out more about this procedure, please contact us to arrange a consultation.
