For patients who have substantial bone loss in the upper jaw
Zygomatic implants are an alternative to more traditional implants which involve drilling directly into the jawbone. Instead of doing this, the Zygomatic implants are much longer then these traditional implants. They are anchored in the upper jawbone, which is close to the dense zygoma bone. This difference in location means that Zygomatic implants can provide a secure foundation for your dental implants while traditional dental implants may not be possible. Where as people with deteriorated jaws may not be able to receive this surgery, advancements with Zygomatic implants means it can still be possible.
