Zygomatic implants are those that are placed in the bone of the cheekbone in patients who suffer atrophy in the jawbone, that is, a severe loss of this. They allow good results in terms of function and aesthetics.
How is the intervention developed?
The procedure consists of two parts; In the first of these, a provisional dental prosthesis is placed and, in the second, the definitive prosthesis is placed. The technique is developed so that the implant is inserted into the zygoma or bone of the cheekbone, without the need for bone grafts and always carried out by a specialist in dentistry. Recovery takes between 24 and 48 hours.
For what type of patients are they indicated?
It is an appropriate procedure for those patients who suffer a partial or total loss of the maxillary bone, who have lost their teeth at an early age or who have worn dentures for a long period of time and this has affected their facial bone structure. In addition, it is also indicated for patients who have previously suffered periodontal diseases.
Results of zygomatic implants
With these fixed implants, both the ability to chew and the facial aesthetics that is lost with the lack of teeth or maxillary bone are recovered. The process is faster because it does not require osseointegration of the affected area or hospital admission. On the other hand, the post-operative is much more favorable for the patient because the discomfort that you will notice after the intervention will be minimal, thus being able to lead a totally normal daily life. Its success is also greater because the prosthesis that is placed is fixed and is not affected by the loss of teeth or by periodontal diseases.
