HOW DOES IT WORK?

How do zygomatic implants work?

Zygomatic implants are done in case you have atrophy (degeneration) in the posterior jaw bone. If you do not have problems in your anterior jaw bone, conventional implants will be placed there.

The procedure includes the following steps:

  • You will be placed under local anaesthesia. General anaesthesia or the use of a neuroleptic may also be applied.
  • Following this, your dentist will make an incision and pull back the tissue to expose your zygomatic bone.
  • Using a drill, your dentist will create space in the zygoma for your implant to be placed.
  • The implant will be placed using specially designed screws for zygomatic implants. These are available in different lengths, and have a 45° angle that compensates for the angulation between the zygoma and the maxilla.
  • The dental bridge will be placed immediately following this.
  • Lastly the incision will be stitched up.

What should I expect from this procedure?

You will have a detailed consultation with your dentist before the treatment. This will include imaging tests and a physical examination of your mouth, in order to determine the best possible treatment plan for you.

The zygomatic bone is denser than the maxillary bone. This allows for more robust anchorage and therefore, a prosthesis can be placed during the time of the surgery. Unlike with conventional dental implants, you will not have to wait for your gums to heal. This means the treatment duration is shorter.

Additionally, as the technique is not very invasive the recovery is shorter and more comfortable.

As with any treatment, aftercare is an integral part of your recovery and your results. Make sure to maintain good oral hygiene and attend regular check-up appointments with your dentist.

Ich bin sehr zufrieden und bedanke mich nochmals.

Ich habe mich lange und ausgiebig über Implantate auf Google informiert und wollte es in der Türkei machen lassen. Ich stieß auf diese Zahnpolyklinik und vereinbarte einen Termin um mich beraten zu lassen in meinem Urlaub. In Deutschland war es mir zu teuer. Nach dem sehr gutem Beratungsgespräch entschied ich mich für die Behandlung und die Implantate. Ich bin sehr zufrieden und bedanke mich nochmals.
