What are the zygomatic implants? How do they differ from conventional?

The zygomatic implants are a titanium fixtures available today in dentistry and which will allow us to treat certain patients that were previously impossible to treat with conventional techniques of implantology. These implants mainly differ in the size you have. Here are three types of implants, these two implants are used both in the maxilla and mandible for a conventional implant treatment and we have here at the center is a zygomatic implant, which has a length and a little more we will help especially to treat patients with bone problems in the maxilla.


What is the treatment?

Treating zygomatic implants involves placing one, two or four zygomatic implants in the patient's mouth. These can come combined with otherConventional implants depending little bone loss presented by the patient. Typically, patients who try come with a loss of bone moderate to severe atrophy or large, heavy loss of bone. Depending a bit of each of the cases there will be a treatment or other treatment with zygomatic implants. The main treatment of zygomatic implants would be the Quad treatment, which consists of putting two zygomatic implants on one side of the patient's face and two on the other side of the patient's face who will be joined with a prosthesis. The second treatment is usually performed treating zygomatic implants combined with conventional implants, which are placed in the jawbone. Usually placing a zygomatic implant to each side of the face, which will then combined with two or four implants will be housed in the upper jaw. This treatment is called hybrid treatment. And finally there may be a possibility that we have to put zygomatic implants in dentate patients, but should always be attached either to another zygomatic or other conventional implant to implant, as it is not recommended the zygomatic implant rehabilitate a unit.


What advantages over other techniques?

The zygomatic implants give us certain advantages over other techniques, especially when compared to techniques in which we have to proceed to the patient bone grafts. The techniques that we have to proceed to bone grafts of the patient, routine that takes a bit with this procedure is first to graft the bone, with waiting times for that bone solidify and form new bone, to subsequently place a conventional implants, give another timeout so that they can then take their permanent teeth. The consideration is the zygomatic implants, in which on a day zygomatic implants placed in the same day or the next day the patient can start keeping their fixed teeth on implants. So much time and reduce the inconvenience we cause patients. And above all we give the assurance that from the outset these patients can lead fixed teeth with which socially and when to have power will undoubtedly improve the quality that we can provide.


How new technologies help us?

The techniques available today to enable us to perform interventionszygomatic implants our patients about all two. A is the radius diagnosisDigital we have, which, as you can see here, we can see reconstructions in 3dimensions of the patient's face, which we can see very well the bone that have to undergo treatment and to advance planning of how it will be our intervention. The second and most important, is the digital planning software guided surgery. This software will allow us to place conventional implants in a guided way through a surgical splint we have previously prepared. This does we will be able to perform in the zygomatic implants, but we will really help to plan these implants in the bone of our patient and have a true picture before you can intervene in how the patient can get those implants in the mouth. We can see anatomical tours, we will be able to plan the inclination and above all, above all anatomical variations that often we are not as we begin to perform the surgery.
