What Are Zygomatic Implants? How Are They Better Than Traditional Implants?
Though a less-known treatment, Zygomatic implants have been around since 1988. It is one of the most prominent treatments of modern implant dentistry as it offers an effective alternative to traditional implant procedures. In fact, dentists suggest that it is a life-changing treatment for people who suffer from social anxiety and poor self-image that entails teeth loss. But before we discuss the various advantages of this modern implantation technique, let’s look at what it is and how it works.
What Are Zygomatic Implants?
Zygomatic implants are prosthetic dental implants that are deeply embedded into the Zygoma or the cheekbone to replace the entire or partial upper jawbone. These are long screws that can be fitted deep into the cheekbone to hold the implant bridge for more than a decade. The new teeth fixed through its 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.
They are typically recommended to patients who cannot opt for traditional implants due to a lack of jawbone tissues 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 specializes in offering these Zygomatic dental implants in Mumbai.
How Is Zygomatic Implants Procedure Performed?
Since the procedure is performed through the jawbone without any external incision, it requires more pre-planning and accuracy than traditional implants.
First, a CBCT scan is performed to see how much of your upper jawbone is intact and where can the implant screws be placed. Then, our surgeon assesses the shape of your jaw and cheekbone arch, and a structural model is created to plan the execution of 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.

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.
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.
