Zygomatic Dental Implants vs. Traditional Dental Implants
Traditional dental implants are placed into the maxillary and/or alveolar bone. Because these areas weaken the longer teeth remain missing, it can make receiving dental implants more difficult. With zygomatic dental implants, these longer posts offer outstanding stability because of their placement within the zygomatic bone. Free from potential deterioration, it creates a firm foundation and offers the same great results as those who receive regular dental implants.
How Do Zygomatic Dental Implants Work?
This specialized technique involves anchoring longer implants (approximately 30-55 mm) into the zygomatic bone to create a stable foundation for your custom prosthesis. This particular bone is unlike the maxillary bone that can easily be resorbed. The zygomatic bone does not experience a loss in bone mass because it is within the cheek. Once placed, these implants fuse with the zygomatic bone and allow for a more durable and functional smile.
Am I a Candidate for Zygomatic Dental Implants?
Untreated tooth loss often leads to bone resorption, which requires advanced dental procedures to fix. If your dentist explains that you are ineligible for traditional dental implants because of your weakened jawbone, you may be an ideal candidate for zygomatic dental implants. Once you arrive at our office, we will examine your smile and begin the planning stages of your upcoming treatment.
Benefits of Zygomatic Dental Implants

- The ability to receive your new prosthesis the same day as your zygomatic dental implants.
- A minimally invasive procedure as opposed to a bone graft or sinus lift.
