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”.
