Using Zygoma Implants

In case you have insufficient bone available in your upper jaw and have been advised against dental implants then you may be an ideal candidate for trying out a revolutionary technique known as zygomatic implants. Though using bone graft or sinus lift may also help restore enough bone for placing implants but the process is invasive and involves significant amount of discomfort. Zygomatic implants are implants that are longer than normal dental implants and are anchored in the cheek bone. The procedure is performed under a general anesthesia by a specialized oral and maxillofacial surgeon and can be completed in a day?s time. New teeth can be connected to them using the All ?on?4 method. Once the zygomatic implants are placed, then the replacement upper arch is placed. Throughout the process the patient was on sedation though not unconscious and experienced minimal discomfort. Any surgical procedure involves great risks and it is advised to take an expert opinion before proceeding with it. The experience and expertise of an implant dentist along with the quality of the materials used is very significant. For further information please do not hesitate to talk to our experts.
