Who is a candidate for pterygoid and zygomatic implants?
Posted on: July 25, 2023
Clients who have gone without teeth for some time will experience a degree of bone loss.
Zygomatic and pterygoid implants may be recommended to clients with insufficient upper jawbone quality or quantity to increase the likelihood of treatment success.
Before zygomatic and pterygoid implants were widely adopted, a bone grafting procedure would have been needed to build up the jaw in preparation for full mouth dental implants.
