ZYGOMATIC (CHEEKBONE) IMPLANTS

THE ADVANCED SURGICAL TECHNIQUE ENABLING FIXED DENTURE IN THE CASE OF BONE DEFICIENCY
When sufficient bone is not available for inserting an implant into the maxilla, implant treatments can still be applied thanks to special implants inserted into the zygomatic bone (cheekbone).
Zygomatic implants are developed to be used in those maxillae that involve an advanced level of bone resorption and in which a sinus lift operation or bone grafts cannot be applied. This also eliminates the waiting time period of about 6 months after a sinus lift operation. Insertion of implants without applying such advanced surgeries both shortens the treatment time and also enables an easy application of the procedures. Sufficient bone might not remain for making a denture in the maxilla in those cases in which tumors are excised. In such situations, zygomatic bones are utilized for making fixed dentures or for increasing the grip of removable dentures.
If it is possible to insert one zygomatic implant each to the right and left sides in the maxilla and normal implants on the front side of the jaw, dentures can be made on the same day in which those implants are inserted. In this way, it becomes possible to make dentures rapidly and reliably even in those patients who suffer excessive loss of bone.
