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.
Zygomatic implants are ideal for patients with absence of maxillary bone
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.
What are immediate loading implants?
Immediate loading implants are those in which the dental implant (screw that replaces the root of the tooth) What are immediate loading implants?
Immediate loading implants are those in which the dental implant (screw that replaces the root of the tooth) and a provisional prosthesis are placed in a single intervention. This technique favors the healing of the bone tissue and the integration of the implants in the bone, which makes it possible to dispense with the period without fixed teeth, with the consequent aesthetic and functional advantages, because the prosthesis resting on the gums does not reduce the discomfort , so that the patient can smile and eat from the first moment.
The provisional dental prosthesis is removed when it has been three to six months since the insertion of the implants. Instead, the dentist will place the final piece that has been made so that it integrates with the rest of the patient's teeth. The intervention is carried out under local anesthesia.
For what type of patients are immediate loading implants indicated?
These types of implants are recommended for those patients who suffer the loss of one, several or all of the teeth or if they suffer a significant deterioration of them. In addition, the patient must meet certain requirements to be able to undergo the procedure. Among them, have an adequate amount and quality of bone, undergo a good periodontal maintenance and also comply with a good gingival and periodontal state of the adjacent teeth.
Immediate loading implants offer multiple advantages for the patient
How is the procedure carried out?
The implants that are placed on the patient can be a unit or a full arch. In the second case you can place between four and six implants that serve as support for a prosthesis.
The fixed prosthesis that is placed initially is provisional, and is done in this way to guarantee a correct osseointegration of the implant in the bone. Once the period has been completed according to the specialist's criteria, usually after the third month, the final fixed prosthesis is placed.
Advantages of immediate loading implants
One of the most important advantages for the patient with the placement of an immediate load implant is that it offers the possibility of continuously carrying the temporary fixed prosthesis without the need to carry the removable prosthesis, which can be annoying. In addition, it offers a progressive adaptation to the definitive prosthesis.
The patient can recover the functionality of their teeth, especially chewing, in addition to improving their phonation and aesthetics.
Some specialists even recommend immediate loading and conscious sedation to replace all the teeth with fixed teeth in just one day.

The main causes of bruxism are stress, body and closing the mouth position, sleeping habits or the patient's ability to relax. Bruxism evaluation should be done with this in count in the field of dentistry and otolaryngology, since it can cause hearing disorders such as ear infections. The goal of treatment is to reduce pain, prevent tooth decay and reduce teeth grinding full. To relieve pain you can apply ice, avoid eating hard foods like nuts, candy or steaks, drink lots of water, sleep and reduce stress. The damage of the teeth, mouth prosthesis often called splints or appliances apply.
Tooth decay is a disease that affects the tissues of the teeth, which are destroyed because of the acids plaque. The teeth affected are drilled gradually, causing pain when the infection reaches the nerve. People who are often most affected are children and young people, but can occur at any age.
A dental implant is an artificial fixing piece in the jawbone to replace the root of a missing tooth. To implement it, the dentist should stick a titanium screw into the jawbone, on which after a prosthetic crown (artificial tooth) is placed. This surgery can be classified into various types, according to the phases in which it is carried out: immediate dental implants, when the implant is placed immediately after tooth extraction to shortening the rehabilitation time and avoiding a second surgery; Recent dental implants, when between extraction and implant elapse between six and eight weeks; delayed implantation, when the dentist makes a regeneration of bone first, then wait for the implant about six months; and mature dental implants, if it has been more than nine months between the two phases.
