Zygomatic Implants at a Glance
Unlike conventional dental implants that are secured in the jawbone, zygomatic dental implants are surgically placed in the zygomatic bones. With support coming from a strong, stable facial bone, these dental implants don’t require alterations of the jawbone, such as bone grafting, to support the bridge of fixed teeth. Since zygomatic implants are one of the most complex surgeries in implant dentistry, there are only a few oral surgeons trained in this procedure. With years of specialized training, experience, and clinical results to back up his treatments, Dr. Ryan places zygomatic dental implants at our nearby office locations on a routine basis. By placing zygomatic implants, he can offer you the following benefits:
What Can You Expect from Zygomatic Implants?
Zygomatic dental implants may sound more invasive than conventional treatments, but they can be placed in just one surgical procedure without any additional bone grafting while you’re under anesthesia. To create a treatment plan that fits your dental needs and facial features, Dr. Ryan uses products from our state-of-the-art dental lab such as our 3D cone beam CT scan to digitally plan your treatment before you arrive. During your procedure, your implants will be placed in strategic positions in your zygomatic bone to ensure maximum stability. This might also involve placing conventional dental implants where the bone in your jaw is most dense. Because no bone grafting is necessary for this treatment, we can often complete your treatment process in one office visit to provide you with a functional, beautiful new smile more quickly than with conventional treatment. With zygomatic dental implants from Dr. Ryan at NuSet Dental Implants and Oral Surgery, you can experience a better quality of life permanently!
