an alternative to bone grafting

Longer Implants for the Upper Jaw


Zygomatic Implants engage the very strong bulk of bone that forms the cheekbone. These innovative Dental Implants can be used as an alternative to complex bone grafting operations, making it possible to carry out surgery in just one simple stage.

After the surgical placement of the implants, we routinely fit a fixed resin bridge on the same day.

Previously patients would have endured several surgical graft treatments over 9-18 months in order to have the required bone to anchor an implant.  These longer implants make grafting virtually unnecessary, and we have been able rid patients of their dentures in just one day.

Wearing traditional dentures can lead to a large loss of supporting bone and cause a ‘collapse’ or loss of face height. We have found that Zygomatic Implants corrects this loss of facial structure and can have a rejuvenating effect to the appearance of the face, especially for those patients who have worn dentures for a long time.

The benefits of Zygomatic Implant Treatment

Although Zygomatic implants are considerably longer than conventional implants, the treatment is very similar from the patient’s perspective:

  • Placement of Zygomatics is minimally invasive
  • We use image guided surgery for greater precision
  • We do not have to carry out a wide surgical exposure
  • We make the experience as comfortable as possible
  • Treatment usually takes place under intravenous sedation

A Comprehensive Same Day Missing Teeth Treatment


Depending on bone availability we may only need to use one or two Zygomatic Implants, along with 2-4 ordinary dental implants to support the restoration.
In cases where bone has further diminished in availability, up to 4 Zygomatic Implants may be used to achieve a stable support for restorations.
In particularly challenging cases where the jaw is exceptionally damaged by advanced bone loss / destruction, we will design and make implants specifically for your particular situation.
