What are zygomatic implants?

Following the extraction of teeth, there is a gradual loss of bone in the jaws. This bone atrophy worsens over time and dentures become unstable.
When patients have advanced bone atrophy in the upper jaw, the volume or quality of the bone is not suitable for conventional dental implants. In this case, zygomatic implants are placed in the cheek bone (zygomatic bone) and provide excellent stability for a fixed denture.
This advanced, computer-planned technique avoids the need for major bone grafting and significantly reduces the length of the treatment, as the prosthesis is fixed on the same day as the surgery.
The zygomatic implant surgery is first planned virtually on a computer program before the surgery is performed in the mouth. This step allows Dr. Pertick to determine the ideal and optimal location of the zygomatic implants in order to maximize their integration and function.
