Zygomatic Implants

These Implants Are Anchored Into The Zygomatic Bone

Service Overview

Dental Implants are an away to replace the missing tooth with something that looks, feels and mimics a natural tooth. When these implants become difficult to place in the upper jaw bone, research has developed newer and more advanced ways of implant placement. The cheekbone which is also known as the malar bone is technically known as the ‘zygomatic bone’. It is the main anchorage for the zygomatic implant placement. When implants are planned for the upper jaw, it is normally a difficult situation. The upper jaw may pose a few of the following problems:

  • Poorer quality of bone available in the upper jaw as compared to the lower jaw due to age or bone resorption.
  • Decreased width and height of bone over time may be due to various factors.
  • The presence of air spaces or sinus in the upper jaw may also reduce the available height of bone in the back tooth regions.
How is a zygoma implant placed?

The zygoma implants are placed for the eating teeth of the jaw and are approached within the mouth, along with the placement of additional dental implants in the front region of the jaw. If the case is found to be too severe, two zygomatic implants may be placed on each side, which is known as Quad Zygoma. In cases of severe complexities, a custom made implant may be suitable. With proper planning and expertise, the implant treatment can be completed on the same day. The fixing of the tooth can also be done immediately.

Zygomatic Implant Case Study

Before Treatment

After Treatment

Bone resorption along with lower bone quality often makes it impossible to place dental implants in the posterior maxilla. Zygomatic implants are then advised and anchored in to the zygomatic bone rather than the maxilla. Zygomatic implants are planned for the upper jaw in complex situations such as poor quality of bone, bone resorption, decreased height of bone over time or presence of air spaces or sinus.

Few of such cases can be done with a pinhole technique under local anesthesia on the same day itself.

Before Treatment

After Treatment

Bruxism or teeth grinding happens when you grind or clench your teeth unknowingly. If you are a bruxist, you may unconsciously grind your teeth when you’re awake or during sleep. Mild bruxism may go unnoticed but severe bruxism leads to wear-off of the top surface of teeth leading to sensitivity, damaged teeth, jaw joint disorders, sleep disorders amongst other problems.

For severe bruxism, the standard of care is stress reduction, night guards with prosthetic correction. But now it is possible to incorporate the properties of the night guard into the prosthesis or artificial teeth itself, called SAPT technology. This offers a comfortable, esthetic and long term solution for such conditions.
