Patient Education - Zygomatic Implants

Zygomatic dental implants are a solution for patients who have the most severe form of bone loss in their upper jaw. Think of it as an alternative to bone grafting.

Designed specifically for patients with bone loss, zygomatic implants are tilted and much longer than those used in traditional dental implant procedures. 

While traditional implants are placed in the jawbone, surgeons utilize the zygomatic implant’s length to securely place them in the patient’s cheekbone (zygoma). The zygoma is a very dense bone and provides excellent support for the lifetime.

Recovery from the zygomatic dental implant procedure is very similar to the traditional dental implant procedure. The ease of recovery surprises many of our patients. Some patients experience bruising around the lower eyelids. Generally, 3-5 days after the procedure you will be able to return to your normal routine.
