Zygomatic Implant Benefits

Zygo Implants allow patients who otherwise would not be implant candidates to receive treatment to bring them back to form and function.

Smile Confidently With Zygomatic Implants

Zygomatic implants are an alternative to more traditional implants which involve drilling directly into the jawbone. Instead of doing this, the Zygomatic implants are much longer than traditional implants. They are anchored in the upper jawbone, which is close to the dense zygoma bone. This difference in location means that Zygomatic implants can provide a secure foundation for your dental implants while traditional dental implants may not be possible. People with deteriorated jaws may not be able to find success with traditional implant surgery. Advancements with Zygomatic implants means it can still be possible.

Benefits of zygomatic implants in patients with severe dental bone loss
The zygomatic implant has become the implant of choice for cases with a severely resorbed maxilla. Without this implant, many patients would otherwise require invasive grafting procedures to establish adequate bone volume for the placement of conventional implants. Zygomatic implants help avoid grafting and shorten treatment time, with significant post-operative improvements in function and esthetics.
