Yes, Dental Implants Are An Option!

Losing a tooth has several unfortunate consequences. Depending on its position, it can knock your confidence leaving you self-conscious about smiling. But it doesn’t just affect your looks. It can put you at increased risk of gum disease or tooth decay. Over time, neighbouring teeth can shift and slide into the new gap, causing misalignment elsewhere.

Under the surface of your gums, other problems may be brewing. Your jaw will deteriorate without having the root of a tooth anchored to it. This impacts your facial structure, making you look old before your time.

Dental implants prevent this bone loss while restoring the look and function of your teeth. In some cases, if bone loss has already occurred, there’s not enough density to sustain an implant. 

If you’ve been told that you can’t have a traditional dental implant, you may think your options are limited. The great news is that they’re not! With Zygomatic implants at Love Teeth, we can get around the problem of insufficient bone mass and give you the new smile you deserve.

How Do Zygomatic Dental Implants Work?

As with standard implants, we’ll use titanium posts to replace the root structure of your upper teeth. However, where standard implants are placed vertically into the bone, we’ll use longer rods to take advantage of the zygomatic arch. 

By positioning longer implants at an angle toward your cheekbone, we’ll gain access to an area of undiminished bone volume. This alternative technique gives support and anchorage to bridgework where normal implants would fail.

The other alternative to zygomatic implants is a sinus lift or bone graft procedure. These are both great ways to replenish lost bone density, but the healing process required before implant placement is long. We can place zygomatic implants straight away.

The Zygomatic Implant Procedure

Before placing your implants, we’ll perform a CT scan and assess your teeth. This information lets us identify the exact position and angle to ensure perfect placement. 

We’ll give you an anaesthetic so you don’t feel anything during the procedure. The exact number of implants we’ll place will depend on your specific circumstances, but we’ll often use two zygomatic implants with up to four standard implants.

After placement, we’ll put in a temporary restoration that will let you eat, smile, and speak while our technicians make your permanent teeth. If you like the temporary placements, just wait and see what our team can do! Once the permanent restorations are ready, we’ll place them.

Why Choose Zygomatic Implants

Zygomatic implants give your teeth fantastic rigidity and support. This truly life-changing procedure will allow you to enjoy all your favourite meals again and smile with renewed confidence.

Bone resorption is a real problem. Without an implant, your bone will slowly deteriorate, reducing the support of even the best-fitting dentures. The presence of the implant will help stimulate bone growth in your jaw and keep your facial features from collapsing.
