Zygomatic Dental Implants in Maxillary Reconstruction Using Computer-Guided Planning Software
Zygoma implants or zygomatic implants vary from traditional dental implants, in which it is anchored in the zygomatic bone (cheekbones) than the maxilla (upper jaw). It can be used when the quality or quantity of Maxillary bone is small for transplantation of dental implants. Lacking Maxillary Bone Dosage can be caused by bone loss and the combination of maxillary sinus pneumatization or a combination of both.
Zygomatic dental implants is an alternative method
Minimum bone height should be around 10 mm for standard implant placement in the upper jaw, so that acceptable implants can survive.
Implants perform normal dental implants and have long ‘anchor’ in very strong bone of the cheekbone, which makes cheekbone or zygomatic arc hence its name. This means that implants can be used as an alternative to complex bone grafting operations, which makes it possible to carry out surgery at just one stage. Prior to Zygoma implant surgery, a CBCT scan will be taken to evaluate the amount of bone available in the upper jaw and we will be allowed to plan this implant placement.
