Zygomatic & Pterygoid Dental Implants

No Bone…No Problem

When the quality and quantity of bone in the upper jaw are insufficient for the successful placement of conventional dental implants, zygomatic dental implants provide the required stability and support to rebuild a complete smile with implant-supported crowns, bridges, and other dental prostheses.

With zygomatic and pterygoid dental implants, there’s no need to perform additional surgical procedures such as bone grafting or sinus lift procedures to increase the volume of bone required for successful implant placement. What this means is that patients, who are not candidates for traditional bone augmentation and implants, can still enjoy the benefits of an implant-based solution to reestablish their smiles.

While conventional dental implants are placed directly into the jawbone, zygomatic dental implants are placed in the zygomatic bone, more commonly known as the cheekbone. Located on the left and right side of the upper jaw, the cheekbones have the inherent strength and density to provide ample support for zygomatic dental implants, which once placed are immediately stable enough to support restorations. As for the pterygoid implants, they are in the pyramidal process of the upper jaw bone. The pyramidal process is a dense island of bone that provides excellent support for dental implants.

Teeth in a Day

Because zygomatic dental implants are placed into a strong, dense bone, this allows for the temporary dental prosthetic to be immediately loaded or placed onto the implants. This benefit allows patients to walk out of the surgical center with new teeth on the same day.

While zygomatic dental implants are a relatively new and advanced dental treatment, they have quickly gained popularity for their realistic feel and lasting functionality.
