Do you have missing teeth and your dentist has recommended you to get zygomatic implant? Have anyone told you that you have thin maxillary bone? In virtually no or less bone dental implant be done? Dental implants have been there since decades. And since the last decade there have been tremendous improvements in the field of dental implant, dental material sciences and dental technologies.
The difference between a Zygomatic Dental Implant and a regular dental implant is that the former is longer and placed diagonally into the cheek bone (zygoma), to make use of the extra bone here. This bone usually does not resorb and hence zygomatic implants are an alternative in cases of less bone.
Traditionally, bone grafts were recommended for weak or less bone, in cases where regular dental implant were not possible. These bone grafts either taken from the body or commonly made of synthetic materials. With the revolutionary SAPT technology along with advances in dental implants a more success oriented, efficient, stable and capable solution can now offered as a permanent treatment choice.
The cheekbone or zygoma which is also known as the malar bone is known as the zygomatic bone is the main achorage for the zygomatic implant. When implants are planned for the upper jaw, it is normally a difficult situation. The upper jaw may pose the following problems:
- Poorer quality of bone available in the upper jaw as compared to the lower jaw due to age or bone resorption.
- Decreased width and height of bone over time.
- The presence of air spaces or sinus in the upper jaw also reduces the available height of bone in the back tooth regions.

Modern techniques for dental implant placement even in weak bone includes 3D X-rays along with virtual surgical planning. At Royal Dental Clinics, with the help of in house CBCT, CAD- CAM and 3D printing solution the team is successfully delivering results on the same day. Use of custom-made solutions along with dental implant protocol for zygomatic implant, helps to achieve the desired strength for the final fixation of the permanent teeth. Use of modern teeth material with light weight, shock absorbable and plaque resistant properties (SAPTeeth), has increased the life and longevity of the treatment.
Now, once the implant is placed, when should the teeth be placed over them?
In cases where the clinical support is found to be weaker, the doctor may suggest options like splinting with the help of neighbouring teeth or not loading teeth immediately. You may also ask your dentist about light weight SAPTeeth polymers. SAPTeeth are Shock Absorbable Permanent restorations which reduce the load on the dental implant by 24 to 149 times when compared with other conventional crown materials like zirconia, ceramic and metal.
