ZYGOMATIC IMPLANTS

Some patients have been without teeth for so long that their upper jaw has resorbed to the point that there is minimal to no bone available for traditional implants. Or, they are faced with sinus bone grafting of both sides, which adds considerable time, morbidity and cost to the overall treatment plan. Zygomatic implants placed bilaterally, literally into the check bone, along with 2 to 4 implants in the front of the upper jaw, can be used to place a permanent, non-removeable set of teeth on. This, providing the patient with a set of “fixed” teeth within two weeks, with the permanents made 6 months later. This procedure usually has the advantage of NO sinus bone graft, and earlier placement of the permanent restoration / teeth.
