Zygoma implants

Zygomatic dental implants are a safe solution for severe bone loss. The zygomatic implant treatment involves the placement of one or up to 4 implants in the cheekbone to support fixed teeth.

What is a Zygoma Implant & who is it for?

Designed specifically for patients with bone loss, zygomatic implants are tilted and much longer than those used in traditional dental implant procedures. While traditional implants are placed in the jawbone, surgeons utilize the zygomatic implant's length to securely place them in the patient's cheekbone (zygoma).

Should the upper jaw be very deficient in bone even in the anterior region, then double Zygoma implants may have to be inserted into both sides of the available cheekbone to support an upper set of replacement teeth.
