Zygoma dental implants

Providing functional solutions for patients with little bone mass in their upper jaw

What are Zygoma Dental Implants?

Zygoma dental implants are special implants that don’t need to fuse directly to the jawbone. Instead, they extend further and attach to the cheekbones (zygoma). They are usually recommended when there is not enough jawbone for regular dental implants.

Bone loss in the upper jaw can be exacerbated over time by teeth extraction and wearing dentures. Zygoma dental implants also reduce the reliance on potentially painful and invasive bone grafting procedures.

Other forms of dental implant procedures, including bone grafts, require up to 6 months of healing and downtime to fully work. Zygoma dental implants are less invasive, and require far less healing time.

How do Zygoma Dental Implants work?

Traditionally, replacing the majority of teeth in the mouth would require bone grafting, multiple implants, and up to a year of healing time. Permanent teeth would only be fitted after this healing period, resulting in a very long, unpleasant and expensive experience for patients.

Zygoma dental implants are directly anchored to the zygoma bone—the bone at the front of the skull that makes up the upper cheekbones.

  • The patient will undergo initial appointments to determine their suitability for zygoma dental implants.
  • Zygoma dental implants are inserted into the rear of the mouth.
  • If there is enough bone mass, conventional implants will be used in the front of the mouth.
  • If there is not enough bone density in the upper jaw, four zygoma dental implants will be used.

Due to the extensive nature of the procedure, it may take up to four months for patients to completely recover from zygoma dental implant procedures. However, the final result is well worth the wait—a full set of aesthetically pleasing, functional teeth.

Who is suitable for Zygoma Dental Implants?

Zygoma dental implants are suitable for patients who have suffered extensive damage to the upper jaw bone. Patients eligible for this procedure may:

  • Have exhibited severe maxillary bone loss
  • Not be candidates for traditional dental implants
  • Require fast, painless dental implant solutions
  • Exhibit an aversion to bone grafting procedures
  • Seek less invasive and less repetitive treatments

If you no longer want to wear dentures, or require a more extensive treatment than All-on-4 implants, then zygoma dental implants are perfect for you.

After your initial complimentary appointment, the total cost of zygoma dental implants will be determine by your assessment. We will provide a fixed cost that covers the initial process and follow up consultations until you are fully recovered after your surgery.

Have been going to this dentist since 2017 and I've had multiple visits most of the years since and I'm always amazed at how good they are ... Currently Olga is doing my dental work and she is caring and professional. Cannot be faulted. I have no hesitation in recommending this clinic. The best dentist I've ever been to.

I was so scared about going to the dentist and ashamed of the state of my teeth, I needed and chose to have All On 4 done. Wilfred and his team at The Point Dental, were very professional at all times, they made the experience a comfortable one with all of their support every step of the way. I even cried with joy after it was all done. I can now smile again without embarrassment. I already have and will again, highly recommend Wilfred and his team at The Point Dental.

I've been visiting this clinic for 2 years. Dr Michael Seng is a friendly and caring dentist. I have recommend my friends and they are very happy with Dr Seng too. I have moved my children to see Dr Evelyn Teo in this clinic as Dr Seng is not accepting new patients. Dr Evelyn Teo has a sense of humour and she makes us feel comfortable. Both dentists, Dr Seng and Dr Teo, will give constructive feedback to improve our oral hygiene and explain everything in detail. If I could, I really want to give 10 stars for both of them.

I highly recommend The Point Dental for anyone, but especially for people who have any stress or anxiety associated with the dentist. The front office team have been amazing, they are warm and friendly. I'd like to point out Natalie who has helped me from my first enquiry and has made be feel very welcome and comfortable. Dr Olga Kaini has been looking after me, she is friendly, highly professional, and has been very patient with me about my dental anxiety. She has done her best to make me feel comfortable and at-easy while in the chair and can't thank her enough. I have full confidence and trust that the team at The Point Dental have my best interest at heart. If you are looking for a dentist embodies professionalism, compassion and skill, then look no further. And if you think your dental anxiety gets too much, ask for the green whistle!
