“Not enough bone for dental implants?”
Zygomatic Implants from Valley Oral Surgery in Allentown, Bethlehem, Lehighton, and Quakertown may help
What are Zygomatic Implants?
If you’ve been told that you can’t get dental implants due to bone loss or not having enough bone, “Zygomatic Implants” may be the solution for you.
Valley Oral Surgery offers Zygomatic Implants, a revolutionary dental implant technique that now only allows for fast loading of your new teeth, but also reduces the number of procedures you’ll undergo.
Traditionally, if you did not have sufficient bone in your upper jaw, we often turned to bone grafting and possibly a sinus lift, which took time to heal and involved multiple procedures.
Zygomatic implants are longer implants that are directly embedded into the lower part of the cheek bone, where there is enough bone support for dental implants.
Why choose Zygomatic Dental Implant surgery?
Every dental implant requires a solid anchor of bone. Typically, dental implant placement is complicated in the back part of the upper jaw because of the proximity of the air sinuses. Bone loss occurs more rapidly here when teeth are missing and the presence of the air sinus cavity creates an obstacle. In the past, in addition to bone grafting, a patient might typically have a sinus lift procedure performed as well prior to the placement of the dental implants.
The board-certified surgeons of Valley Oral Surgery can perform zygomatic implant surgery that will give you the smile you want, while speeding your recovery and reducing the number of procedures you unergo.
The development of this longer zygomatic implant created an alternative for patients who wish to avoid multiple procedures, bone grafting, and sinus lifts, while still get dental implants.
Since these implants can be placed in areas with only one surgical procedure, this eliminates the need for grafting and reduces the need for multiple procedures.
