Zygomatic Implants Tackle Severe Bone Loss
Due to many reasons, bone loss in the upper jaw can become too extensive to have missing teeth replaced with conventional dental implant treatment. However, our oral surgeons provide an amazing solution with zygomatic dental implants, which eliminate the need for bone grafting while making a full arch of new teeth possible. If you have been told that you are not a candidate for dental implants, turn to our experts for this revolutionary new solution.
Oral and maxillofacial surgeons are the experts when it comes to dental surgeries, with extensive knowledge and expertise to handle complex dental cases with predictable results. Our oral surgeons are some of only a few in the country who routinely place zygomatic dental implants in Williamsport, PA as part of their full arch treatments. With this specialized solution offered at our practice, we can help patients who previously were told they didn’t qualify for dental implants with a new smile and life!
Understanding Zygomatic Dental Implants
Unlike conventional dental implants, which are secured in the jawbone, zygomatic dental implants are surgically placed in the zygomatic (cheek) bones. With support coming from a strong, stable facial bone, these dental implants do not require alterations of the jawbone, such as bone grafting, to support a bridge of fixed teeth. Zygomatic implants are one of the most complex surgeries in implant dentistry and few oral surgeons are trained in this procedure. Our oral surgeons place zygomatic dental implants in Williamsport, PA on a routine basis and have years of experience and clinical results to back their treatments. By providing zygomatic implants, our oral surgeons can offer you the following benefits:
What to Expect from Zygomatic Implants
Zygomatic dental implants may sound more invasive than conventional treatments, but they can be placed in one surgical procedure without any additional bone grafting while you are under anesthesia. Our oral surgeon will use 3D cone-beam CT scans to digitally plan your treatment before you arrive. During your procedure, your implants will be placed in strategic positions in your bone to ensure maximum stability. This procedure may also involve placing conventional dental implants where the bone in your jaw is most dense. Because no bone grafting is necessary for this treatment, we can often complete your treatment process faster and provide you with a functional, beautiful new smile more quickly than with conventional treatment. With zygomatic dental implants from our oral surgeons at Susquehanna Oral & Maxillofacial Dental Implant Surgery, you can experience a better quality of life permanently!
