They are a longer type of dental implant. Their name comes from the anatomical position they are meant to be placed. They are anchored in the upper jawbone, which is close to the dense zygoma bone. But they have the same function as a regular implant; retaining a denture, dental bridge or dental structures
Zygomatic Dental Implants are a bigger type of surgery than conventional Dental Implants. The procedure takes place at a hospital, under general anesthesia and an infection controlled environment. The first part of the procedure is placing the zygomatic implants, then, the prosthodontist will place a temporary denture fixed to the implants. You will leave the hospital with fixed teeth on that same day.
After 4 to 6 months, your body has accepted the implants and a new final denture will be fabricated. The end result is a new set of teeth in a patient who up until the Zygomatic implant technology, could not have had dental implants.
