What are zygomatic dental implants?
Posted on: July 25, 2023
Zygomatic dental implants are longer than conventional implants and used in cases where there is not enough upper jawbone quality or quantity to support new teeth. These implants are angled and inserted into the upper cheek or zygomatic bone, providing a very strong and reliable foundation to support teeth. They are often used in combination with conventional dental implants in All-On-4 surgery.
Dr Norcross may consult with a specialist oral maxillofacial surgeon for the placement of zygomatic implants.
