Have you been told you don’t have enough bone in your upper jaw to have dental implants? Our expert dentists at Fusion can often help patients like you by using zygomatic implants.

These extra-long implants secure into the back of your cheekbones rather than your jaw and can be used to secure a new set of teeth.

Typically, two zygomatic implants are used alongside two or four regular dental implants to support a bridge of replacement teeth or a denture in the upper jaw. In contrast, the lower arch would be restored using conventional implants.

With your new teeth, you’ll be able to eat and drink anything you wish. You’ll smile and laugh without feeling self-conscious, and your new implants will help protect your remaining teeth for the long term. And for those patients who are especially nervous about having treatment, the zygomatic implant procedure tends to be shorter and more comfortable as they eliminate the need for bone grafting and can often be carried out using a local anaesthetic or intravenous sedation.

If you have been considering implant treatment but are worried that you might not have enough supporting bone, book an appointment with us to see whether you might be suitable for zygomatic implants. At Fusion, we offer free no-obligation telephone consultations. You never know – we may well have news for you that’ll put a big smile on your face!
