What are zygomatic implants
Zygomatic implants are a new technique where the implants are inserted into the zygoma bone (cheek bone). Zygomatic implants are used for patients with severe bone loss in the upper jaw. With this technique, patients avoid bone grafts and sinus lift procedures, which can shorten the overall treatment time.
What is the difference between traditional implants and zygomatic implants
Several differences exist between zygomatic implants and traditional implants. Zygomatic implants are approximately 2 to3 times longer than traditional implants. The foundation of a zygomatic implant is very secure and therefore does not require bone graft or sinus lift. With traditional implants, a bone graft may be required in the case of atrophy of the upper jaw bone.
