Zygoma dental implant treatment
HomeDental Implant Methods & ProcessZygoma Implants

Zygoma dental implants or zygomatic implants are done for the edentulous upper jaw where there is severe bone resorption in the maxilla (or upper jaw) where bone condition has insufficient anchorage for prosthesis (fixed bridges or overdentures). The zygomatic dental implants provide such cases with a permanent solution involving minimal surgical procedures at reduced treatment time, without sacrificing their expectations of success.

Zygoma implant presents a unique alternative for rehabilitating the severely resorbed maxilla, with only one surgical procedure and without the need for grafting.

The zygoma dental implant treatment is done in 1 phase:

  1. Tooth extraction (if required)
  2. Implant post placement
  3. Make and Fit Prosthetics on implant

With the zygoma dental implant technique, teeth is extraction and the implant post placed during the same surgical visit. A fixed acyrlic bridge is fabricated and functioning within 1 to 2 days after surgery. The timeline for zygoma dental implants is thus completed within one trip.

Factors to consider for Zygoma-implant

  • Clinically symptom free and pathology free sinuses
  • Appropriate radiographic imaging of the maxillary sinuses and zygoma regions
  • Possibility of placing at least two ordinary implants in the frontal maxilla
