The difference between a Zygomatic Implant and a normal dental implant is that the former is longer and is placed diagonally into the cheek bone (zygoma), to make use of the extra bone here.
Usually after extracting a tooth, the bone that held the tooth starts to shrink. In some cases the shrinkage is severe resulting in insufficient bone to hold a dental implant. This usually means a sinus lift and bone graft is required to build up bone structure and achieve better stability. In certain cases we can place longer Zygomatic implants into the cheekbone, giving better stability and strength to hold a implant retained bridge, and thus sometime negating the need for a bone graft. Zygomatic implants are placed carefully avoiding the sinuses, also eliminating the need for sinus lifts.
Dental implants are a great solution to replace missing teeth, but can involve a 6 month period of waiting for the implant to fuse with bone before placing teeth onto the implants. With an Zygomatic Arch, you can place a bridge onto the implants straight away; therefore you will walk out of the surgery with a brand new smile.
