Zygomatic Implant Benefits

Zygo Implants allow patients who otherwise would not be implant candidates to receive treatment to bring them back to form and function.

Because of the unique and specialized nature of Zygoma Implants, it is imperative for the long term success of the case that the surgeon have a long and proven consistent history of successful Zygomatic Implant placement and integration.

Zygomatic Dental Implants in Kelowna, BC

At Kelowna Implant Clinic, we are all about helping you rediscover the joy of a confident smile. If you have been facing challenges due to significant bone loss in your upper jaw or have been told that traditional implants aren’t an option for you, zygomatic dental implants can be a game-changer you have been looking for.

How Are Zygomatic Dental Implants Different From Traditional Dental Implants?

The key difference lies between the placement of implants. Traditional Implants require a certain amount of healthy bones for successful integration. However, zygomatic dental implants utilize the dense zygomatic bone, which is often unaffected by bone loss in the upper jaw. This innovative approach expands the possibilities for individuals who were previously deemed ineligible for dental implants due to bone loss issues.

Who is Eligible for Zygomatic Implants?

Zygomatic implants are particularly beneficial for patients who:

  1. Have Severe Bone Loss: If you've experienced extensive bone loss in your upper jaw, zygomatic implants offer a viable solution without the need for bone grafts.
  2. Suffer from Sinus Problems: Traditional implants in the upper jaw can sometimes interfere with the sinuses. Zygomatic implants, anchored in the cheekbone, avoid this issue.
  3. Seek a Faster Solution: Zygomatic implants can often be placed in a single surgical procedure, reducing treatment time compared to bone grafting and traditional implant approaches.

Our experienced team at Kelowna Implant Clinic will assess your dental health and bone structure to determine if zygomatic implants are the right choice for you.

  1. Initial Consultation: We'll conduct a comprehensive examination, including digital imaging, to assess your oral health and bone structure.
  2. Treatment Planning: Based on the evaluation, our team will create a personalized treatment plan tailored to your specific needs.
  3. Implant Placement: During the surgical procedure, zygomatic implants are strategically placed in the zygomatic bone to ensure optimal stability and support.
  4. Healing and Integration: Over the following weeks, the implants will fuse with the surrounding bone, creating a strong foundation for your permanent prosthetic teeth.
  5. Prosthetic Attachment: Once the implants have integrated successfully, custom prosthetic teeth or a denture will be attached, restoring your smile and function.

Throughout the process, our team prioritizes your comfort and well-being, utilizing advanced techniques and sedation options to ensure a positive experience.

This may include adopting a soft diet to avoid putting excessive pressure on the implants, practicing good oral hygiene with gentle brushing and rinsing, and avoiding activities that could disrupt the healing process, such as smoking or heavy physical exertion.

Benefits of zygomatic implants in patients with severe dental bone loss
The zygomatic implant has become the implant of choice for cases with a severely resorbed maxilla. Without this implant, many patients would otherwise require invasive grafting procedures to establish adequate bone volume for the placement of conventional implants. Zygomatic implants help avoid grafting and shorten treatment time, with significant post-operative improvements in function and esthetics.
