Zygomatic Dental Implants
YOU DO HAVE ENOUGH BONE
Have you been told you have limited jaw bone and dental implants won’t work for you? Good news! Zygomatic Implants are a safe and effective way to avoid the costly and unpredictable method of advanced bone grafting.
What Are Zygomatic Implants?
Zygomatic implants are for patients who’ve been told they don’t have enough bone for full mouth implants. The traditional method for enhancing bone in the upper jaw involved a procedure called a sinus lift. However, sinus lifts may take months to heal properly and don’t always have the same long term outcome that zygomatic implants do. The bone you already have is usually superior to anything that’s grafted.
GET YOUR NEW TEETH THE SAME DAY
No waiting! With Zygomatic implants you don’t have to wait for extensive healing to occur. Your process towards better chewing progresses the same as anyone with traditional implants. You enjoy getting your new teeth immediately attached to the implants so that you’re ready to smile and eat again.
Dr. McRee uses the latest and most advanced techniques to safely provide durable, long-term results with Zygomatic implants. Initially, Zygomatic implants were placed through the roof of the mouth and through the sinus cavity. However, this involved many complications such as sinus perforations and produced extremely bulky teeth on the roof of the mouth. With today’s advanced techniques, we use an extra-sinus approach that feels streamlined to the patient and has much lower postoperative risks. Studies show this approach is far superior to previous methods in almost every conceivable way.
