What Is Zygomatic Implants Procedure?

Treatment for zygomatic implants is planned using a CT scan to save operating time and accurately craft the final dental bridge. Zygomatic implants are done if you have posterior jawbone atrophy (degeneration). With the help of state-of-the-art technology, Specialist Surgeons can perform treatments with the highest precision and in the safest conditions possible.

Zygomatic Implants: Step by Step Guide

The procedure consists of the following steps:

1. Initial Consultation, CT Scans, and X-Rays

The pre-procedure step starts by taking a CT scan or X-ray to evaluate the situation of your mouth and jawbone density. Impressions of your teeth and gum tissues are also made and sent to our dental lab to design customized prostheses — the jaw and crown bridges connected to the implants.

2. Anesthesia and Extraction

Your dentist will apply local anaesthesia. General anaesthesia may also be an option. If any teeth extraction is required, this will be done simultaneously with the implant fitting.

3. Zygomatic Implants Placement

Your dentist will make an incision and expose your zygomatic bone. Using a dental drill, your dentist will create room in the zygoma to place your implant. The implant will be installed using special screws for zygomatic implants. These come in different sizes and have a 45° angle that compensates for the angulation between the zygoma and the maxilla. Lastly, the incision will be stitched up.

4. Final Crowns Placement

Our dental lab specialists will then create your absolute zirconia bridges based on your mouth impressions. We will schedule a final appointment, and you might need to stay in Istanbul for five nights. The doctor will position your last bridges and assure you they satisfy your expectations.

Your new smile will be beautiful, natural-looking, and everlasting. You only need to maintain it with simple brushing and flossing. You will smile, speak, kiss, and chew with enthusiasm!

What Should I Expect From Zygomatic Implants?

You will have a specific consultation with your dentist before the procedure. This will contain imaging and a physical examination of your mouth to decide the best potential treatment technique for you.

The zygomatic bone is denser than the maxillary bone. This allows for stronger anchorage and, thus, a higher success rate for individuals with low maxilla jawbone density.

Additionally, as the procedure is not very invasive, the healing is shorter and more comfortable.

As with any treatment, aftercare is essential for your recovery and results. Ensure good oral hygiene and follow regular check-up appointments with your dentist.

What Are the Advantages of Zygomatic Dental Implants?

High Success Rates: Zygomatic dental implants have a high success rate. It is assessed that the success rate of zygomatic implants varies from 97-98%. In the case of complications, the most typical complications of zygomatic implants are sinusitis, and paresthesia.

No bone grafting: Zygomatic implants are perfect for those with lower bone density as the implants can be fitted without the need for expensive and time-consuming bone grafts in most cases.

Relatively New Treatment: Zygomatic implants are a fairly new advancement in dental implant technology. Since they developed into the dental implant world, zygomatic implants have been earning popularity for their efficacy in patients who would otherwise not be candidates for dental implant placement.

No Sinus Lift: There is no need for these additional procedures with zygomatic implants. Not only does this mean fewer procedures, but it also means that you can get your implants sooner rather than later.

Getting Zygomatic Implants In Turkey: How Does It Go?

Every year, hundreds of patients travel for Zygomatic implants procedure in Turkey. But, before booking your treatment, here are a few common tips from us.

What Is The Cost Of Zygomatic Implant Procedure?

Zygomatic implants cost slightly more than standard (root form) implants. Still, the overall costs are comparable because fewer are required (2-4 zygomatic implants versus 4-6 standard dental implants) for each treatment.

After your dentist consultation, All On Dental will provide you with a precise quote for the complete treatment; all aspects of the procedure are completed with your dentist.

Can A Zygomatic Implant Be Combined With A Standard Dental Implant?

Zygomatic and regular dental implants can be combined to achieve a successful result. Some patients will have good jawbone density for implant placement at the front of their mouth but not at the back; in these cases, combining the two implants is a must.

How Successful Are Zygomatic Implant Treatments?

Zygomatic implants are highly successful, particularly when considering how dental implant technology has developed over the last twenty years. Nevertheless, the success of all dental implant treatments relies on the patient’s general health and discipline to continue with routine aftercare. To maintain functionality, patients must watch for their implants by brushing and flossing at least twice daily to clean the implants and teeth (crowns).

Ensure good oral hygiene and follow regular check-up appointments with your dentist. If patients follow their dentist’s recommendations and guidelines, zygomatic implants can stay for a lifetime.
