What are Zygomatic Dental Implants?
Though a less-known treatment, Zygomatic implants have been around since 1988. It is one of the most prominent treatments in implant dentistry as it offers an effective alternative to traditional implant procedures. In fact, dentists suggest it as a life-changing treatment for people suffering from bone and tooth loss. But before we discuss the various advantages of this implantation technique, let’s look at what it is and how it works.
What are Zygomatic Implants?
Zygomatic dental implants are prosthetic implants that are deeply embedded in the zygoma, or cheekbone. They replace the entire or partial upper jawbone. These are longer screws than traditional implants that can be fitted deep into the cheekbone to hold the bridge. The new teeth fixed through the bridge look, feel, and work just like your natural teeth. You will also experience a subtle boost to your social life as you will regain your beautiful smile and the ability to eat anything with your family and friends. With Zygomatic Implants offered at Royal Dental Clinics, there is no need for a complex bone grafting operation, which can take up to six months to heal, and several procedures to have fully functioning teeth.
They are typically recommended for patients who cannot opt for traditional implants due to a lack of jawbone tissue or who are suffering from severe maxillary resorption. At Royal Cosmognathic, we also offer this treatment as an alternative to implant cases where extensive bone grafting may be required for upper jawbone replacement. Any implantologist cannot perform this treatment. You will have to look for an oral maxillofacial surgeon who specialises in offering these Zygomatic dental implants in Mumbai.
How is Zygomatic Dental Implant done?
Since the procedure is performed in the jawbone without any external incision, it requires more pre-planning and accuracy. First, a CBCT scan is performed to see how much of your upper jawbone is intact and where the implant screws can be placed. Then, the surgeon assesses the shape of your jaw and cheekbone arch, and a structural model is created to plan the implants. The dental bridge to be installed is also designed and prepared before the procedure.
Finally, during the surgery, a set of implant screws are fitted through the dental and into the dense cheekbone without damaging any surrounding nerves or soft tissues. The dental bridge is also installed over the implants. Royal Cosmognathic, Kandivali, Mumbai are proud to be at the forefront of zygomatic implant placements using the modern virtual surgical planning and surgical guides. In fact, because of the use of SAPTeethTM they are now able to restore the upper jaw with immediate load protocols and give permanent fixed shock absorbable teeth.
Zygomatic Dental Implant procedure
Prior to the surgical procedure, the team at Royal Dental Clinics do a thorough and extensive examination to accurately assess the situation. They first make photos, stone plaster models of the patient’s teeth and a three-dimensional X-ray (CBCT). This is necessary to accurately determine and implant placement and length. These preparatory measures are completely painless for the patient and take only a few minutes. Use of customised implants may be needed in circumstances where the stock implants would be unable to bear the load.
What are the benefits of Zygomatic Implants over regular ones?
Zygomatic implants are fixed on the same day with a single surgical procedure, whereas the grafting approach takes up to eighteen months and multiple procedures for completion. Hence you get natural and sparkling white teeth in just one day. Following are some of its other advantages over traditional prosthetic or grafting implant procedures:
