Zygomatic Implants in Firestone, CO

Zygomatic implants are a type of dental implant used to replace teeth in the upper jaw when there is not enough jawbone to support traditional dental implants. Unlike traditional implants, zygomatic implants are anchored to the cheekbone instead of the jawbone.

This style of implant may be recommended for individuals who are not candidates for traditional dental implants due to significant bone loss in the upper jaw. Those who have worn dentures for many years, those with severe periodontal disease, or those who have experienced trauma to the upper jaw may be candidates for zygomatic implants.

  • What are Zygomatic Implants?

    Zygomatic implants are a kind of dental implant for people who don’t have enough bone in their upper jaw. They take the place of missing teeth and are attached to the cheekbone instead of the jawbone. This makes them an alternative to traditional implants.

  • How are Zygomatic Implants and Traditional Implants Different?

    Traditional dental implants are inserted into the jawbone. However, if there is a lack in jawbone, bone grafting may be required. Zygomatic implants, on the other hand, are anchored to the cheekbone. This makes zygomatic implants a solution for individuals who have experienced bone loss in the upper jaw.

  • What are the benefits of Zygomatic Implants?

    1. No bone grafting: Bone grafting is not necessary for placing zygomatic implants. This can save time and reduce the need for extra surgeries.
    2. Stability increased: The cheekbone provides a more stable foundation for the implant.
    3. Reduced treatment time: Zygomatic implants can be placed in a single procedure and reduce the overall procedure time compared to traditional implants.
    4. Improved functionality: Zygomatic implants can provide a more secure foundation, which can improve chewing ability and overall oral function.
