Not Enough Bone Structure for Dental Implants?
Zygomatic implants, also known as zygoma implants, are advanced dental prosthetic devices used in oral implantology. Zygomatic implants allow many patients who were previously told they did not have enough bone for dental implants to receive treatment. These implants are specifically designed to provide a stable foundation for dental restorations in cases where traditional dental implants are not feasible due to insufficient bone quality or quantity in the upper jaw.
Zygomatic implants are inserted into the cheekbone, or zygomatic bone, known for its dense and sturdy structure. This anatomical location offers zygomatic implants a reliable alternative for patients with severe maxillary bone loss or atrophy. The procedure involves the precise placement of these implants into the zygomatic bone, providing a strong anchor for the subsequent attachment of dental prostheses, such as bridges or dentures. Zygomatic implants restore oral functionality and aesthetics and enhance the patient's quality of life by enabling comfortable chewing, speaking, and smiling.
