DENTAL IMPLANTS are a great solution to replace missing teeth, but can involve a 6 month period of waiting for the implant to fuse with bone before placing teeth onto the implants. In cases of weak jaw bone, an extended period of bone grafting may take 6 months more. But now, with this novel approach to the zygomatic bone/cheek bone, you can place a bridge onto the implants straight away; therefore you will walk out of the surgery with a brand new smile.
Zygomatic Implants are used when there is insufficient bone to hold a normal dental implant in the upper jaw. The difference between a Zygomatic Implant and a normal dental implant is that the former is longer and is placed diagonally into the cheek bone (zygoma), to make use of the extra bone here. This bone usually does not resorb.
Zygomatic implants are significantly longer than normal dental implants and are anchored in the stable bone that makes up a part of the cheekbone — this explains their name. Therefore zygomatic implants can be used as an alternative to complex bone augmentation.
ZYGOMATIC IMPLANTS AT ROYAL DENTAL CLINICS
Royal Dental Clinics, Kandivali, Mumbai are proud to be at the forefront of zygomatic implant placements using the modern virtual surgical planning and surgical guides. In fact, because of the use of SAPTeeth they are now able to restore the upper jaw with immediate load protocols and give permanent fixed shock absorbable teeth.
Success of zygomatic implant over 5 years has been documented to be around 96% and over 10 years has been around 93%.
Prior to the surgical procedure, the team at Royal Dental Clinics do a thorough and extensive examination to accurately assess the situation. They first make photos, stone plaster models of the patient’s teeth and a three-dimensional X-ray (CBCT). This is necessary to accurately determine the implant placement and length. These preparatory measures are completely painless for the patient and take only a few minutes. Use of customised implants may be needed in circumstances where the stock implants would be unable to bear the load.
With Zygomatic Implants offered at Royal Dental Clinics there is no need for a complex bone grafting operation, which can take up to six months to heal and several procedures to have full working teeth.
The zygomatic dental implant procedure is carried out in just one stage – this includes the implant placement and the fixed bridge. The procedure has an immediate impact on your ability to bite and chew, and will give you great looking teeth, which, if cared for properly, will last a lifetime.
To successfully and predictively place dental implants and then to be able to fix artificial teeth with function and aesthetics requires a seamless coordination between the doctors, radiology, staff, laboratory and patient. Royal Dental Clinics have an in house CBCT (dental x- rays) and an in house laboratory with the latest CAD-CAM and 3D printing technology to ease the process.
Having multiple dental chairs with an area of about 9000 sq. ft. in 2 centres in Mumbai and strength of 5 expert dentists and about 25+ other staff members; Royal Dental Clinics is able to complete the treatment on the same day which would have otherwise been difficult.
As per Dr. Chirag Chamria, Maxillofacial Surgeon at Royal Dental Clinics, “Those who do not have enough jaw bone for the secure insertion of implants don’t have to give up on fixed dental prostheses, thanks to Zygoma implants.”
