Zygoma Implants For Rehabilitation

Best Zygoma Implants For Rehabilitation in India

Many patients were unsuitable for getting traditional dental implants because of their weaker bones in the mouth area. Patients who have a higher degree of withering tissues in the oral cavity, resulting in an inability to support dental implants can benefit from the zygoma alternative implants at our clinics in Mumbai. Zygoma technique was developed in the late 90s, since then the technique has evolved and advanced into a more sought-after dental implant treatment for people unfit for traditional dental implants.

Traditionally patients require grafting procedures to get their teeth implants in place. However, zygoma implants for rehabilitation can present as an alternative treatment without any need for grafting of the bone of the patient.

Unlike the traditional implants of teeth that were attached to jawbones, zygoma implants are adhering to the zygoma bones of the cheeks. This interesting technique allows the patient to be able to get more sturdy and durable implants than before. These implants have a different but simpler design than earlier implants that had a complex process of attaching. The patient can have their zygoma implants fitted the same day of the dental implant process. 

What Are The Zygomatic Implants? 

Dental implants can be tricky for patients based on the severity of their teeth loss and the condition of the jaw or oral cavity. Zygoma implants present a whole new world to all patients to enjoy their teeth and smile makeover without the need for any special treatment like bone grafting. Patients can now avoid the need to lift their sinuses or to get bone grafts from any other part of the body. 

Therefore, zygoma implants for rehabilitation can be the right fit for patients, making the process more comfortable and significantly shorter. Our top dental experts would anchor these implants in the zygoma jawbone of a patient. Zygoma implants get their name from implant placement to the zygoma bone or the denser cheekbone of a person.

Zygoma implants for rehabilitation of the teeth of a patient work perfectly as compared to the traditional ones given their deeper anchorage. These implants are put deeper inside the zygoma bones of the face by drilling the screws to hold implants in place. Zygoma or the cheekbones present a much denser bone structure to hold the implants with great strength and stability. 

When Zygoma Implants Are Required?

The main sign of indication to get zygomatic implants loaded is the particular condition of maxillary withering or weaker bone of the mouth. In many cases, resulting from trauma or any other condition, a patient is not deemed fit to get traditional dental implants. Stronger anchorage and adhering to attached bone snugly make zygoma implants a better choice for a complete denture of implants of the mouth. Here is some common reason why zygoma implants are a better choice:

  • Failure to get traditional dentures or dental implants because of poor placement.
  • No need to get bone grafting procedures to get the implants.
  • Failure with sinus augmentation procedures.

How Do They Work?

The famous zygomatic implants for rehabilitation of teeth work by attaching the implant to the stronger and denser bone of the face, zygoma check-bones. The dental implant is anchored using a longer surgical screw to hold the implant in place inside the zygoma. The zygoma bone can provide a sturdy base to our patients for the implants to hold on to them. 

The patient will have no scarring on the visible part of the face as the procedure is done inside the mouth only. The recovery time of zygomatic implants for rehabilitation of teeth requires four months at lengths. After the recovery time, our expert at The Esthetic clinic would do a final restoration to complete the rehabilitation of the teeth. After the recovery and restoration, patients can have a new smile ready beaming with new confidence.

Advantages Of Zygoma Implants 

Zygoma implants have made a strong presence amid the traditional implant procedure of teeth rehabilitation lately. In many cases, where the patients were having difficulties and complications in getting implants, zygoma implants came with a new ray of hope. Being quicker and more durable procedure, here are some notable advantages:

  • No need to get the grafting procedure and waiting for the recovery following the grafting of the bone before getting dental implants. 
  • No delay in getting the implants fixed inside the mouth.
  • Zygoma implants for rehabilitationof teeth require a single day of surgery making it a faster procedure for getting implants.
  • Patients do not require any waiting time for healing of the oral cavity before getting a prosthesis of the teeth.
  • Zygoma implants offer same-day loading of the teeth implants letting the patient see instant results. This means that our patient would not have to go without teeth while the implants heal.
  • Prosthesis placed on the zygoma implants is retained by screws, which allows our experts to easily remove them in case there are any procedure issues.

How Zygoma Implants For Rehabilitation are Placed?

Zygoma implants for rehabilitation require specific diagnosis and treatment plans at our clinics. Precise treatment planning includes 3D bone scans, and CBCT before a zygomatic implant for rehabilitation procedure. Following are some of the crucial steps of zygoma implants for rehabilitation treatment:

  • Given the complexity of the procedure and extensive bone drilling involved, our experts will make sure to get every test, x-rays, and scan done beforehand. 
  • The patient is made aware of the possible complications and risks that can occur during or after the zygoma implant treatment.
  • Antibiotics are usually started before the procedure orally and are then continued for a few days after the surgery, to prevent the onset of any infection.
  • Generally, a single zygoma implant is placed on either side of the jaw by our expert dental surgeons. Two or four additional conventional implants can be placed in front of the jaw, to provide adequate support to the dental prosthesis.
  • In cases, if there is an extreme dissolution of the bone, our expert can put two zygomatic implants on either side, known as quad-zygoma implants procedure.

Are There Any Complications?

Like the earlier traditional dental implants, zygoma dental implants have a higher success rate too. It is estimated that the success rate of zygomatic implants for rehabilitation ranges as much as 97-98% based on the studies worldwide. In the case of complications, the most common risk of zygomatic implants is sinusitis, paresthesia, and oroantral fistula. 

Our team of doctors and surgeons would ensure every patient goes through a series of pre-surgical tests and diagnostics that are appropriate as per their severity. Using an expert and advanced approach while loading the dental implants would diminish any possible complications beforehand by a great degree. While patients take the zygoma implants for rehabilitation of their teeth, our top surgeons at The Esthetic Clinics would ensure the process is smooth and pain-free.

Like with most surgical procedures, you can expect mild discomfort as the effect of sedation wears off. Follow our top surgeon’s advice and take medication as prescribed to minimize the post-operative discomfort. Placing zygomatic implants for rehabilitation is a very precise procedure requiring a considerable amount of skill and deep knowledge about the anatomical landmarks of a human. Therefore, the patient has to keep in mind there would be a considerable amount of consultation time and as well as healing time. However, zygoma implants are a faster technique and the patient can go home on the same day of the surgery.

Often, the planning stage for the treatment involves collaboration between different kinds of dentists, but the actual surgery is usually performed by a top oral surgeon or a periodontist at our clinics in India.
