Bone loss can affect anyone. The jaw needs support from healthy teeth in order to sustain the bone. Without healthy teeth, the jawbone will weaken over time and slowly lose bone. There are other causes of bone loss as well, but all of them negatively impact one’s ability to get new teeth. Standard dental implants require healthy bone in order to be placed, which leads most patients needing a bone graft.
Luckily, there is an easy solution! Zygomatic dental implants are a graft-free implant solution to help patients live a happy and healthy life with new teeth. Here is how zygomatic dental implants may help patients in Fairfax, VA.
What Are Zygomatic Dental Implants?
The zygomatic bone is a structure in the face that includes areas such as cheekbones. This bone is rarely, if ever, impacted by bone loss. For those experiencing bone decay, this makes it a perfect site to hold dental implants.
This is a highly specialized procedure, as not many doctors have strong knowledge of the zygomatic structure. Plus, the posts used for zygomatic implants are angled to fit into the zygomatic bone. These posts act as replacements for patients tooth roots by providing the same strength back to the patients jaw and allowing the bone to heal.
A zygomatic dental implant procedure will give patients their upper set of teeth back in full functionality. This full mouth treatment can restore a patient’s quality of life, the functionality of their mouth, and return them to confidence in Fairfax, VA.
The Benefits Of Zygomatic Dental Implants
For those with bone loss, zygomatic dental implants have massive benefits. All of a sudden, a patient can go from dismissing dental implants to thinking about them in a brand new light. The key benefits of zygomatic dental implants are:
- Fully functional upper arch
- A quicker alternative to bone grafting
- Dependable and long-lasting results
It is also worth noting that this office does place a functional, temporary set of teeth during the same surgical visit while the patients full implant is being prepared. This allows patients to live their life while the dental office does the work of preparing the final zygomatic dental implant piece.
