What Are Zygomatic Implants?
Zygomatic implants are very much like normal implants, apart from two key differences. The first is that they are longer than usual. This serves a very specific purpose, and is the reason for the success of the treatment in patients with a weak jaw bone. The extra length allows the implants to reach further to the Zygoma, commonly known as the cheekbone.
The Zygomatic implants are fixed not into the jawbone like regular implants, but into the cheekbone, where they fuse with the dense bone in a process known as osseointegration.
