Zygomatic Implants

What Are Zygomatic Dental Implants?

Zygomatic implants are designed specifically for patients with bone loss, zygomatic implants are tilted and much longer than a traditional dental implant. While traditional implants are placed in the jawbone, the zygomatic implant utilizes the patient’s cheekbone (zygoma) to make sure they are securely in place. The zygoma is a very dense bone and provides excellent support for zygomatic implants. 

Thanks to advancements in dentistry, patients who have been told they are not candidates for traditional dental implants, can be considered for zygomatic implants. There is a small list of surgeons in the world, less in the United States, who have the skills and qualifications to place zygomatic implants. The leader in Michigan and the midwest is Dr. Bruce Smoler, who has been trained by the best to place and help patients that need zygomatic implants.

Why Consider Zygomatic Dental Implants?

If you would like dental implants but have been told that you are not a candidate due to a lack of supporting bone in your upper jaw, you should consider zygomatic implants as a dental implant option.

Do you have Bone Loss or Need Bone Grafting?

Before zygomatic treatment options were available, patients with bone loss would be subject to a process called bone grafting. Bone grafting is a process that commonly takes three to six months, sometimes longer before implants could even be placed.  With the option of zygomatic implants, patients have a solution to receive full mouth teeth replacement in one day with no bone grafting.
