Zygomatic implant, which is one of the applications used for patients with tooth loss, is surgically placed on the zygoma (cheekbone) bone, unlike traditional root-form implant applications. It can reach 30-55 millimeters and is longer than other dental implant types.
For the zygomatic implant to be applied, the patient's upper jaw must not have been implanted before. Suppose the zygomatic implant is placed between the upper jaw's posterior teeth. In that case, it may be a more difficult application than the lower jaw.
It can be preferred for patients whose upper jawbone does not have sufficient strength, whose upper jawbone is severely damaged, or who has lysis in this bone. Before zygomatic implant application, these patients may need to complete treatment processes such as bone grafting (bone augmentation) or sinus lift. The zygomatic implant can offer a quick solution to these exhausting lost tooth treatments.
After the application, the patient should be sensitive and careful about dental care. It is of great importance for the patient to follow the dentist's recommendations to use their teeth without reencountering problems.
