What are zygomatic implants?

The zygomatic bone, more commonly known as the cheekbone, can be used to support special, lengthened implants in addition to regular implant placement in the jaw. This treatment is used in cases where the upper jaw bone has reduced mass or strength and cannot secure a prosthetic device with jaw-fitted dental implants alone.

In typical cases, two zygomatic implants are used in conjunction with two to four regular dental implants. This combination is able to anchor full arches of replacement teeth in place and avoids the need for bone grafting.

How it works

Zygomatic implant FAQs

Will I be without teeth during the process?

A temporary, low-pressure bridge of replacement teeth can usually be fitted on the same day as the implants are placed. This means that patients won’t be without teeth any longer than necessary.

The permanent restorations are custom-made in a laboratory and replace the temporary versions at a follow-up appointment when they are ready. This is usually after a period of about six to eight months, when the implants have been able to integrate with the bone and can support a full prosthetic device.

Does the procedure require sedation?

Yes. As the treatment is more complex it is usually carried out under sedation. We have excellent sedation provision at the clinic and you will be in safe hands throughout your treatment.

What if I’m very anxious about the treatment?

Our team are highly experienced and are used to looking after patients who are nervous, or who have a dental phobia. We will do all we can to make you feel comfortable and at ease.

Please contact reception in advance of your appointment if you have any concerns that you would like to discuss.

How do zygomatic implants differ from regular dental implants?

The two are very similar and made from the same titanium material. Zygomatic implants can replace a full upper arch of teeth and are therefore longer and stronger than traditional implants.

Zygomatic implants are longer in order to extend the greater distance to the cheek area.

Pterygoid implants vs zygomatic - what are the key differences?

Pterygoid and zygomatic implants are both advanced teeth implant techniques used when traditional implants are not feasible due to insufficient bone in the jaw.

The key differences are:

  1. Placement Location:

    • Pterygoid Implants: These are placed in the pterygoid region, which is located behind the upper jawbone (maxilla). They anchor into the pterygoid process, a bony structure adjacent to the maxilla.

    • Zygomatic Implants: Zygomatic implants are anchored into the zygomatic bone (cheekbone). They extend through the maxilla and into the zygomatic bone.

  2. Bone Anchorage:

    • Pterygoid Implants: These implants utilize the pterygoid bone for anchorage, support and stability.

    • Zygomatic Implants: Zygomatic implants rely on the zygomatic bone for anchorage, as it is denser and offers strong support for the implants.

  3. Indications:

    • Pterygoid Implants: They are typically used when there is severe bone loss in the upper jaw, particularly in cases where traditional implants cannot be placed due to insufficient bone volume in the posterior maxilla.

    • Zygomatic Implants: Zygomatic implants are used in cases of extreme maxillary bone resorption where traditional implants are not possible. They are also used when there is significant bone loss in the posterior maxilla but with better bone quality compared to pterygoid cases.

  4. Surgery Required:

    • Pterygoid Implants: Placement of pterygoid implants requires specialized surgical skills due to their location and proximity to vital structures like nerves and blood vessels. It may involve a more complex surgical procedure compared to traditional implants.

    • Zygomatic Implants: Zygomatic implant surgery is also complex but relatively more straightforward compared to pterygoid implants. 
Is the treatment similar in length to All-on-4/6/8?

Yes. The process as a whole is almost the same, though the placing of the implants does typically take longer. The procedure can still generally be carried out in a single day.
