What Are Zygomatic Implants?

If you have been turned away for traditional dental implants, zygomatic implants could provide the solution for you. Zygomatic implants are a real alternative for patients for whom traditional dental implants are unsuitable. Our implant dentist Richard Brookshaw is very skilled in extreme bone loss cases; he is one of only a handful of surgeons nationwide who is able to carry out zygoma implant surgery in patients with bone loss, using specially designed zygomatic implants.
In this blog, we take a look at some of the benefits of zygomatic implants and why they just might be the best option for you.

What Are Zygomatic Implants?

Zygomatic implants differ from other types of implants such as All-on-4, as they are anchored in the zygomatic or cheekbone hence the name. Typically, the zygomatic implant is ideal for patients who may have an inadequate or poor quality bone in their upper jaw, so regular dental implants would be impossible. When dentures have been worn for a long time, it can lead to the loss of large amounts of supporting bone which creates a ‘collapse’ or loss of face height. Zygomatic implants correct this loss of facial structure which also has a rejuvenating effect to the appearance of the face.

Dr Brookshaw and patient Janice discuss her zygoma implants in this video, explaining why it was the best solution for her after so many years of struggling to find a dentist who could provide her with a fixed solution.

What is the Zygomatic Implant Procedure Like?

Although Zygomatic implants are considerably longer than conventional implants, the treatment is very similar from the patient’s perspective. The placement of Zygomatic implants is minimally invasive, using our image guided surgery. Also, to make the experience as comfortable as possible, this treatment always takes place under sedation.

Same-Day Treatment

Once the surgical placement of the zygomatic implant is completed the bridge is fitted the same day. This removes the need for a waiting period for grafts to heal; meaning patients can be free of their dentures practically overnight. The whole procedure is completed in a single session, meaning you don’t have to wait six months for a confident new smile. The zygomatic treatment plan is also a faster alternative when compared against more complicated bone grafting procedures.

Zygomatic Implant Recovery Times

One of the biggest benefits when it comes to zygomatic implants is the fact that the recovery time is relatively speedy. As mentioned above, the dentures can be fitted the same day as your surgery. But, the surgery itself does not require a bone graft and thus the recovery time can also be much faster –between 4 to 6 months.

Initially I was quite apprehensive about having 2 implants, but upon my consultation with Gavin ., i felt encouraged by his knowledge and advice . The whole experience in a very relaxed atmosphere could not have been any better. I am well impressed by their professionalism and expertise in this Practice and would most certainly give them a Top Class recommendation .

I had a wisdom tooth extracted by Gavin after having toothache due to my tooth breaking. I was nervous as I had not had a tooth removed by injection before. Gavin was reassuring, explained the procedure fully and it was over quickly with no pain. All staff at the practice are caring, friendly and professional and I have been going for many years. I highly recommend Dental Solutions.

Can’t speak highly enough of this practice and in particular Lauren. 2 years ago I walked in and was so nervous I cried just as the sight of the chair. Her and the staff have been so patient and understanding and have worked with me to overcome my phobia. This week I had a filling and was absolutely fine, my family couldn’t believe it. Reception staff are lovely and really accommodating too. So glad I found them, I don’t dread the dentist anymore.

A really Five Star Dental Practice! Upon arrival I was greeted by their most friendly welcoming receptionists. it seems nothing is 'too much trouble' to them. Gavin is similarly very friendly and the surgery is kitted out with the most high-tech modern equipment. On my first visit Gavin examined my teeth and explained my options to me giving me his recommendation for treatment and reasons why. Their Co-ordinator prepared a detailed quote for my treatment and went through it in detail with me, ensuring I understood everything; she had plenty of time for me as a patient. From the outset I had complete confidence in entrusting them with my dental care and the final results are truly amazing. Gavin and Richard could not have been more professional and my treatment was made as painless as possible. Dental Solutions provide a truly outstanding service and I thank them for my new 'long lost' smile and renewed confidence, especially when dining out and talking with people. I can't recommend them too highly.

A first class experience from start to finish. Despite being fearful of visiting the dentist, Gavin put me at ease with his gentle unhurried manner. I was surprised at how relaxed I actually felt undergoing treatment for a crown and the removal/replacement of front teeth veneers. Having felt self conscious about my front teeth for a long time, I decided to have my old veneers replaced. The results were amazing and far exceeded my expectations. What Gavin achieved was nothing short of a work of art, boosting my confidence tenfold. The practice itself is very welcoming, the customer service excellent and the staff are all very friendly and kind. I cannot recommend this dental practise highly enough.
