Zygomatic dental implants (Zygoma)

The zygomatic implants belonging to the „Zygoma“ brand were first used in Sweden in 1990.

This innovation brought by the Nobel Biocare implant manufacturers has replaced complex jawbone augmentation procedures and proved itself a 100%. It has  spread overnight in the world of dentistry and is now applied in many dental clinics worldwide that have a working contract with Nobel Biocare  implants and implantation techniques.

The „Angitia“  clinic was one of the first dental clinics in the Baltics to have applied these zygomatic implants in its clinical practice.

Zygomatic implants are a wonderful choice in cases when it‘s impossible to insert a regular dental implant due to a reduction of bone loss or volume; however, bearing in mind that the reduction of the bone tissue has no impact on the function of the jawbone and the reduction itself is not fairly visible. In addition, the patient‘s consent to such a procedure is also of essence.

Zygomatic implants are the most efficient dental restoration and implantation technique in cases of maxillary jawbone deterioration.

The essential advantage of zygomatic implants is the efficiency and simplicity of insertion: there is no need for jawbone augmentation or sinus lift procedures. Once these durable and reliable implants are in place, a temporary bridge can be attached just as it would be in cases of regular implantation.

Once the implants merge with the surrounding bone tissue, the permanent tailored prostheses are attached ideally matching the patient‘s jawbone profile as they are manufactured using digital computer imaging technology. The colour and shape of the artificial teeth are similar to that of the original teeth. However, if the lost teeth were of irregular shape, the prostheses would be moulded to resemble a regular shape therefore always providing a healthy and natural look.
