Zygomatic Implants over Regular Implants

What Are Zygomatic Implants?

Zygomatic Implants over Regular Implants

In the event that you have been investigating getting dental implants, you may have run over a particular sort of implant known as zygomatic implants. Since this kind of implant is relatively new, odds are you may not know about zygomatic implants and how they contrast with customary dental implants. Along these lines, here is all you require to think about zygomatic implants. Zygomatic implants are a distinguished type of implantology. This method is probably the most recent improvement in embedded dentistry.

In the event that you are dismissed for customary dental inserts, zygomatic implants could be the answer for you. Cheekbone implants are a genuine option for patients for whom traditional dental implants are unsatisfactory. This is as a rule, because of an absence of bone in the upper jaw. Rather than setting the titanium implants in the jaw bone, longer zygoma inserts are attached to the cheekbone. Numerous patients with noteworthy bone loss favour this technique as it abstains from grafting and sinus lift procedures to create a shorter and more comfortable treatment option.

Here at Royal Dental, our Implant specialist Dr. Chirag Chamria is one of the very few Dental Surgeons in India, who can offer this service of Zygomatic Implants.

Why choose Zygomatic Implants?

If you have been turned away by another dentist for traditional dental implants, then zygomatic implants might offer some hope. According to Richard Brookshaw, zygomatic implants are “an ideal alternative to traditional dentures and a less traumatic and more predictable alternative to complicated bone graft procedures.” They are attached to the area of the jawbone close to the zygomatic bone. The longer implant is placed from inside the mouth, and it goes through or right next to the sinus and anchors into the zygomatic bone. We can now immediately load zygomatic implants with fixed teeth.

The success and comfort of zygomatic implants can be much higher than the convention removable alternate. Also in cases of bone loss zygomatic options maybe the only way to restore a smile with fixed teeth.

Zygomatic implants are new alternatives that may be used to avoid bone grafting and sinus lift and therefore contribute to a shorter and more comfortable treatment. These implants are anchored in the upper jawbone, which is close to the zygoma bone (cheekbone). Zygomatic Implants are much longer in comparison to the traditional implants and may range from 30 mm up to 60 mm. One of the main reasons for zygomatic implant placement is due to bone resorption or reduction in bone quality of the upper jaw.

What are Zygomatic Implants?

Zygomatic implants were first introduced in 1988 as an alternative to traditional dental implants. This is a very intricate procedure in which implants can be placed in the cheekbone instead of the jaw. Zygomatic implants may be used for various reasons, but most commonly because of a lack of bone in the jaw. This is a preferred method as complex bone-grafting procedures can be avoided and also, Zygoma Implants last longer than traditional implants. With zygomatic implants, our patients at Royal Dental Clinics, can walk out with fixed teeth in just one day with one surgical procedure, whereas if implants have to be placed in the graft approach, it can take up to one and a half years with repeated procedures to finalise the treatment.

You must be in good health and have the proper bone structure and healthy gums for the implant to stay in place. People who are unable to wear dentures may also be good candidates. A dental implant is important for you to feel comfortable, confident and to get good aesthetics. If you have teeth clenching or a grinding habit (bruxism), if your oral hygiene is poor, if you smoke heavily or if you have had radiation therapy to the jaw region the success rate for implants decreases. People with well-controlled diabetes, blood pressure or other general medical conditions can have implants.

Benefits of Zygomatic Dental Implant

There are many benefits for choosing cheekbone implants, some of which include:

  • Less invasive than traditional Implants or the sinus lift operations.
  • Same Day Treatment with Fixed Teeth
  • Natural Looking, Permanent and More Durable
  • More comfortable for patients
  • Best solution for severe dental bone loss
  • Excellent stability while eating or talking

Zygomatic Implants are attached to the cheekbone?

These implants are named for the bone that they are embedded into. All the more explicitly, zygomatic implants are embedded into the cheekbone bone, known as the zygoma. Contrasted with the maxillary bone, the zygomatic bone is a lot denser and gives a strong anchor to highlight the implant. 

Can you have dental implant in severe bone loss?

Bone resorption along with lower bone quality often makes it impossible to place dental implants in the posterior maxilla. Zygoma implants are then advised to such patients wherein the implant is anchored into the zygoma bone rather than the maxilla.

What type of surgery is involved?

A single, minimally invasive surgery is needed for the insertion of the MDI mini implants. They have then put into immediate biting or “loading” function thanks to their “self-tapping” design, thereby anchoring a fixed bridge system. As a result, it is often possible to provide complete mini implant services in a single office visit. Mini dental implants clearly represent an enormous breakthrough for the dental implant specialty as the most patient-friendly, cost-effective, proven implant system available today.

How are zygomatic dental implants placed?

Zygomatic dental implants are placed in the bone, just above the gums. This means that the implant goes in on both sides of the mouth, one above each missing tooth. The dentist will numb the area and create a small incision in the gum. A surgical drill is used to open up the bone on both sides of the gap. There are different types of bone augmentation procedures that the dentist can do to help the implant anchor into the bone more easily. After the implant is in place, the incisions are closed up with stitches and allowed to heal for a few weeks before the crown is put on.

Benefits of zygomatic dental implants

  • They can help prevent bone loss. Because zygomatic dental implants sit right on the bone of the jaw, they tend to cause less damage to the surrounding tissue than standard dental implants. As a result, they are often placed in patients who have a weak bone or gum tissue.
  • They can help support single or multiple missing teeth in patients who have healthy gums and jawbones. This can be helpful after an injury or if you have lost your teeth due to gum disease or tooth decay. 
  • They last a long time. With proper care and maintenance, zygomatic dental implants can last for decades.

The success and comfort of zygomatic implants can be much higher than the convention removable alternate. Also in cases of bone loss zygomatic options maybe the only way to restore a smile with fixed teeth.

  • Less intrusive than bone joining and sinus lift tasks
  • One-stage technique
  • Quicker healing time
  • Effective option for patients who cannot have traditional implants
  • Immediate loading with SAPTeeth™ protocol
  • Regular looking, long-term success rate
  • Amazing option in contrast to false teeth
  • Prompt improvement for all intents and purposes, solace and capacity

Who may require these implant?

In cases where there is virtually no bone, weak or less bone, dental implants are feasible with or without bone grafting. Furthermore, all teeth in a jaw can be fixed on merely 4 implants, called All-on-4 Technique.

Smile Back with Taste of Life

When it comes to the relationship between the zygomatic implant and teeth, one of the most important things to discuss is how a smile can be a powerful tool in overcoming difficult emotions.

The zygomatic implant will help you feel better about your facial feature and this could promote a more positive outlook on life. When you have a feeling of bliss, you are more inclined to work better and live healthier in your life.


We at Royal Dental Clinics prefer Zygoma 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”.
