What Are Zygomatic Dental Implants?
Zygomatic dental implants are implant options for patients with severe bone loss in the jaw. With traditional dental implants, the implant posts are surgically installed in the maxilla (jaw bone). When there is not enough healthy bone to support the implant, either a bone grafting procedure or zygomatic dental implants can offer an alternative solution. At Ora Dental Implant Studio in Elk Grove, CA, implant specialist Dr. Devan Dalla will be able to accurately determine the smile restoration procedure that is right for you.
Even if you have multiple missing teeth and have suffered from severe bone loss and soft tissue deterioration, dental implants are still an option. As one of the only dentists in Elk Grove, CA, to offer zygomatic dental implants, Dr. Dalla will find a solution to restore your smile when other dentists can’t. Our practice operates using the most cutting-edge dental technology, including a state-of-the-art intraoral scanner that allows us to recreate a 4D digital landscape of your oral arch, and help you craft a dream smile that will last you the rest of your life.
How Zygomatic Implants Work
The step-by-step protocol of zygomatic dental implant surgery is the same as general implant surgery. Instead of installing implants in the jaw, however, Dr. Dalla will install them in the zygomatic bone (cheekbone). Unlike the maxilla (jaw bone), bone deterioration rarely occurs in the zygomatic bone. The bone remains strong and healthy even in the event of tooth loss, and as such, it provides strong and rigid support for a full mouth restoration with four or more implants. If you’ve been told by another dentist that you are not a candidate for implants because of bone loss, get in touch with Ora Dental Implant Studio today. As the area’s premier implant specialist, Dr. Dalla and our expert team will find a way to handcraft and engineer the perfect, beautiful smile you’ve always dreamed of.
What Causes Bone Loss?
A variety of factors can lead to bone deterioration in the jaw. Most commonly bone loss is the result of poor diet and poor oral hygiene; when bacteria and plaque build up on soft tissue in between teeth, chronic inflammation is usually the result. This inflammation can lead to chronic bacterial infection below the surface of the gums, which will eventually lead to bone loss if left untreated. Still, even in the event of severe bone deterioration and tooth loss, a perfect smile is still within reach thanks to zygomatic dental implants.
