Zygomatic Dental Implants

What are zygomatic dental implants?

Some patients have been told that they have insufficient bone in the upper jaw to be candidates for full arch dental implants.  In this situation, zygoma fixtures (or zygomatic implants) in conjunction with the full arch dental implant treatment (hyperlink) may offer a solution. Similarly, this procedure can be done in just one day.

This also offers an alternative to the bone grafting procedure, meaning there is no need to attach artificial or natural bone in order to fix a new set of teeth. Rather, the surgeon would place 6 implants in the jaw bone, 2 of which extend into the severely resorbed maxilla sinus, anchoring in the very dense zygomatic bone.

As a result, it is then possible to fix a full arch dental implant despite a lack of bone in the jaw.

The treatment

As with all of our treatments, you can take advantage of our full, free consultation before committing to the treatment.

During your free consultation, our team will carry out a full mouth assessment to determine whether you have enough bone to support full arch dental implants. If you do not, we may suggest the zygomatic implant treatment for you.

Our team will explain the full procedure to you and answer any questions you may have.
