Zygomatic Implants and Zygoma Plus®
The All On 4 Plus methodology is suitable for many patients who have otherwise been told they do not have sufficient bone for dental implants. However in some cases in the upper jaw (often due to decades of denture wear), the jaw bone may have developed such severe atrophy that no viable bone remains.
The Zygoma Plus® method can provide a fast and effective solution for most of these patients, and avoids conventional methods of extensive bone grafting (which often required removing bone from the hip).
Zygomatic implants are extra long dental implants anchored into the underside of the cheek bone and may be offered as an alternative to sinus/bone grafting in cases where there is insufficient jaw bone for the standard all-on-4 approach
These are placed while under IV sedation or general anaesthetic. As with all-on-4 implants, your new teeth can be connected within three to four days of the surgery.
Benefits include long term tooth support and faster healing than bone grafting procedures, which would otherwise be needed in such cases. Learn more about Zygoma Plus®.
Please note that any surgical procedures carry risk and before proceeding you should carefully consider all your treatment options.
