Zygoma Alternative To Bone Grafting

01 Feb 2017

Depending on the outcome of your diagnostic x-rays, extra long dental implants may be offered in cases where the amount of bone available in the upper jaw in insufficient.

These implants are called Zygomatic implants and are anchored into the check bone, providing an alternative to grafting procedures in the upper jaw.

The procedure to insert Zygomatic implants is performed under a general anaesthetic and placed by a specialist oral and maxillofacial surgeon. As with the All-on-4 technique, new teeth can be connected to them within three days of the surgery.

Quad Zygoma

In some cases the upper jaw may be very deficient in bone even in the anterior region. For these cases double zygoma implants may be inserted into both sides of the available check bone to support a full upper set of replacement teeth.

As with single zygoma this procedure is performed under general anaesthetic together with a specialist oral and maxillofacial surgeon. A full set of immediate teeth can be connected to the implants after 1-3 days.

In this latest video Dr Larry Benge explains what exactly a Zygoma Implant is and the advantages of this type of implant used today compared to twenty years ago.
