Zygomatic implants are a Swedish surgical technique which allows us to offer implants to patients who have suffered from a great deal of bone and gum loss in the past. Normally, we’d have to recommend bone graft surgery before such a patient could attempt an implant. This meant more time, expense, and surgical risks on the part of the patient. Zygomatic implants solve this problem by allowing implant placement within the course of a single surgery.
Zygomatic implants are longer than traditional implants, which means we can anchor them to two places: the upper jawbone, or your cheekbone (the zygoma bone). Upper jaw bone loss becomes less of a problem simply because we have more options for inducing osseointegration.
