What are dental zygomatic implants? 

These are artificial tooth roots that are surgically installed in the upper jaw. The implants are made up of titanium. Zygomatic are designed to support dental crowns that replace missing teeth. A dental implant is anchored into zygoma or cheek bone, where eventually implant will fuse with surrounding tissue. This creates an anchor point for new teeth to be attached and supported by new bone growth.

Who is a candidate for dental zygomatic implants? 

Dental zygomatic implants are not typically used for missing teeth in the front of the mouth. Rather, they are typically used when you have lost your back molars or premolars. If you have lost all your teeth, and want to replace those missing teeth with dental crowns; dental zygomatic implant is a good option for you!
