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 are an alternative method
Minimum bone height should be around 10 mm for standard implant placement in the upper jaw so that that acceptable implants can survive.
Implants perform traditional dental implants and have long ‘anchor’ in the solid bone of the cheekbone, which makes cheekbone or zygomatic arc hence its name. It 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.
