Zygomatic Dental Implants in Mumbai

Zygomatic implants are a real alternative for patients for whom traditional dental implants are unsuitable. Our surgeons at Royal Dental Clinics are very skilled in extreme bone loss cases; Dr. Chirag Chamria, Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeon at Royal Dental Clinics is one of only a handful of surgeons in India who are able to carry out zygoma implant surgery in patients with bone loss, using specially designed in-house zygomatic implants.

Zygomatic implants differ from other types of implants such as All-on-4, as they are anchored in the zygomatic or cheekbone hence the name. Typically, the zygomatic implant is ideal for patients who may have inadequate or poor quality bone in their upper jaw, and so regular dental implants would be impossible.  When dentures have been worn for a long time, it can lead to the loss of large amounts of supporting bone which creates a ‘collapse’ or loss of face height. Zygomatic implants correct this loss of facial structure which also has a rejuvenating effect to the appearance of the face.

At Royal Dental Clinics, the zygomatic implant has become the implant of choice for cases with a severely reabsorbed maxilla. Without this implant, many patients would otherwise require invasive grafting procedures to establish adequate bone volume for the placement of conventional implants. Zygomatic implants help avoid grafting and shorten treatment time, with significant post-operative improvements in function and aesthetics.

We at Royal Dental Clinics prefer Zygomatic implant as we have noticed in several cases that after zygomatic treatment the improvement in quality of life for the patient is dramatic. Before the treatment, these patients are orally handicapped, which can lead to a lot of psychological, social and functional problems. Dr. Chirag Chamria mentions that, “In my experience, after the treatment quality of life can return to normal. It’s remarkable”.

Dental implants are of utmost importance to patients who suffer significant teeth loss. But it is essential to have a healthy and sufficient amount of upper jawbone to install traditional dental implants. Consequently, many of these patients who suffer from severe jawbone loss have to undergo additional surgical procedures like bone grafting or sinus lift surgeries. And for those who are unfit to have these surgeries, getting dental implants becomes a distant dream.

What Are Zygomatic Implants?

Zygomatic implants are a graft-less solution to dental implants recommended for patients who suffer from severe jawbone loss after losing their teeth. These are long implant screws that can be anchored deep into the Zygoma, i.e., the cheekbone to hold the upper jaw implant bridge.

They help replace the entire or partial upper jawbone without performing the traditional sinus lift or bone grafting surgeries. They are highly recommended to patients who cannot opt for traditional implants for any reason.

They can also be performed as a complementary procedure to traditional implants in the anterior (frontal) portion of the mouth. The new prosthetic teeth fixed through its bridge appear, feel, and function just like your natural teeth.

Dr. Chirag Chamria, Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeon at Royal Cosmognathic, is one of the few trained and experienced surgeons installing Zygomatic dental implants in Mumbai, India, using specially designed in-house zygomatic implants.

Who Is An Ideal Candidate For Getting Zygomatic Dental Implants?

  • Patients whose underlying health conditions prevent them from getting traditional implants can consult a zygomatic implantologist in Mumbai for this alternative treatment.

How Is The Zygomatic Implant Procedure Performed?

Zygomatic implants are fixed on the same day with a single surgical procedure. However, it is performed without any external incision, and hence, requires pre-planning and diagnosis to determine your jawbone structure.

Our zygomatic implantologist in Mumbai usually performs different digital examinations such as dental photographs, CT scans, X-rays, and dental impressions to collect sufficient information about your unique implantation needs. This data also helps the implantologist know the amount of natural bone he can work with.

The implantologist creates a structural model to plan the placement of two implants after analyzing the shape of your jaw and cheekbone arch. If there is little to no jawbone available, he may plan to place four implants, two on each side of the nose, known as a Quad Zygoma Implant. The dental bridge is designed accordingly.

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.

What Are The Benefits Of Zygomatic Implants Over Traditional Implant Procedures?

It is a graft-less solution to dental Implant that requires minimal downtime. Its full-length bridge and strong anchorage into the dense cheekbone offer more bite strength than traditional implants.

When dentures have been worn for a long time, it can lead to the loss of large amounts of supporting bone which creates a ‘collapse’ or loss of facial height. Zygomatic implants correct this loss of facial structure, which also has a rejuvenating effect on the appearance of the face.
