Why Should I Consider a Zygoma Dental Implant?

blonde woman in white silky bathrobe smiling Dr. Leslie Sultan of Fort Lauderdale, FL, is an oral surgeon who offers a number of different oral and maxillofacial surgery solutions for patients in the community. One treatment he is proud to offer to those who qualify is the zygoma dental implant.

What Is a Zygoma Dental Implant?

A zygoma dental implant is a type of dental implant used to replace missing teeth. It is placed in the maxilla, or upper jawbone, and uses two or more implants placed side by side to support the prosthetic tooth. The zygoma implant differs from traditional dental implants in that it anchors itself deep into the zygomatic bone, or cheekbone, providing a more secure and stable foundation for the prosthetic tooth.

When Should I Consider a Zygoma Dental Implant?

There are several situations that may arise in which Dr. Leslie Sultan of Fort Lauderdale, FL, may recommend the use of zygoma dental implants. Below are a few cases where these implants may be suggested over traditional dental implants:

  • Zygoma dental implants may be a good option if other types of dental implants have failed or are not suitable for your situation.
  • If you have lost several teeth in the upper jaw due to an accident, disease, or other trauma, zygoma implants can provide a more stable and secure foundation than standard implants.
  • Zygoma implants also offer the benefits of shorter treatment times, fewer surgical procedures, and less post-operative discomfort.
  • If you don’t have enough bone in the area to support traditional dental implants, or the bone would need extensive augmentation prior to implant placement, then zygoma dental implants could be a viable alternative.
  • Certain individuals who desire same-day tooth replacement can benefit from this type of implant procedure.

How Do I Know if I Am a Proper Candidate for Zygoma Dental Implants?

Ultimately, the best way to determine if zygoma implants are right for you is to consult with a dental implant specialist such as Dr. Leslie Sultan. He can evaluate your individual situation and provide personalized advice on how to achieve the most successful outcome possible.
