Zygomatic implants are a very advanced implant treatment. They are inserted into the zygomatic (cheek) bone, rather than into the tooth bearing part of the jaw bone. Zygomatic implants are an option in cases where there is extreme bone loss and conventional implants cannot be placed.
Why would I need Zygomatic Dental Implants?
Bone loss from the jaws occurs progressively after tooth extraction. If this bone loss is severe, then there may be inadequate bone for conventional implant placement. This might require significant bone grafting procedures to allow implants to be placed. Zygomatic implants are a solution that can treat even cases of extreme bone loss.
Even among oral and maxillofacial surgeons, few surgeons offer this treatment. Dr Baba is the pre-eminent provider of this treatment in South Australia
