Zygomatic implants as a chance for patients with complete edentulousness. Without lifting the sinus floor. No bone grafts. No more wearing uncomfortable, embarrassing dentures!
Until now, such treatments have required a long treatment time, up to two years.
Thanks to zygomatic implants, the treatment process takes up to 4 months.
Zygomes replace dentures
Until recently, people without teeth or with several teeth in the upper or lower jaw were doomed to inconvenient dentures, nowadays the possibilities of reconstructing the teeth are enormous. In the lower jaw (mandible), even with large atrophy and a small amount of bone – you can almost always place nice teeth (the entire dental arch) on 2 implants (so-called overdenture) or on 4 implants (so-called All-on-4). In the case of bone loss in the upper jaw, where you need to rebuild the bone by making the so-called maxillary sinus transplant (Sinus lift), the treatment process is extended by an additional procedure and a minimum healing period of 6 months. After this time, only ordinary, short implants can be implanted, which in turn require another 6 months of healing in order for the teeth to be placed on them – in total it takes about 12 months …
History of zygomatic implants
Zygomatic implants were invented by “Father of dental implantology” – Swedish professor Per-Ingvar Brånemark. He did it after conducting a series of tests on the jaw bone and its resistance to loads. He found that the cheekbone (zygomatic) had sufficient volume and consistency sufficiently compact to properly heal a titanium screw into it.
During the procedure, long implants are inserted into the cheekbones at the right angle and only an experienced specialist can do it. At Dental Fraternity, this procedure is performed by Dr. Paweł Aleksandrowicz, MD, PhD, who has been implanting zygomatic implants for 20 years.
