Zygomatic All-on-four Implants
These implants are placed through the upper jaw to anchor in the dense bone of the zygoma (cheekbone). Patients with severe bone loss in the upper jaw may benefit from this innovative implant procedure. The benefits of this procedure is that these bone compromised patients may be able to avoid invasive bone grafting procedures, lengthy healing times, and often do not need to have a transitional denture. Bone grafting procedures often require patients to be without a denture for several weeks to months and this can often deter patients from having implants. Zygomatic implants can often be immediately loaded hence, there is minimal time that the patient has to go without teeth usually 48 hours.
