Zygomatic Dental Implants
in Ann Arbor, MI

A Teeth Replacement Solution For Those With The Most Severe Form Of Bone Loss

If you’ve been told you are not a candidate for conventional dental implants or that dentures are your only option, zygomatic implants were designed with you in mind. Zygomatic implants, also known as rescue implants, are an alternative to traditional dental implants and bone grafting when there is insufficient bone in the upper jaw.

A Bone Grafting Alternative

Patients who have moderate, advanced, or even extreme resorption in the upper jaw and do not have enough bone structure to support dental implants would benefit from zygomatic implants—a non-removable appliance that attaches to the zygoma, or cheekbone. The procedure does not involve bone grafting (or the lengthy six-month healing period), so implants can be placed immediately.

Zygomatic Implants: The Process

At Legacy Oral and Facial Surgery Center, we begin with a consultation in which we use advanced technology to gather information pertaining to your case. We use pre-surgical 3D planning with CBCT scans to develop a comprehensive overview. This ensures that each implant is placed with precision and accuracy.

During surgery, we anchor long implant screws in the zygoma, a thick and solid bone near the sinus, also known as the cheekbone. Typically, the process requires the use of two zygomatic implants in combination with two to four traditional implants. The traditional implants are placed in the anterior region, toward the front of the jaw where the upper front teeth were previously located. If you have teeth that need to be extracted prior to zygomatic implant placement, they can be removed during this single surgery.
