Specialists in unique solutions for patients with bone lossZygomatic or Short Implants
What happens when you don’t replace your missing teeth?
When a gap is left by a missing tooth, the surrounding teeth have a tendency to shift because that tooth is no longer helping to keep everything in line. Ultimately, teeth may become crooked or new gaps may appear between teeth.
Another issue that may occur is super-eruption. The tooth that opposes the site of the missing tooth may start to grow out from its position because it no longer has the opposing tooth to resist it.
Boneloss is another problem if you don’t replace a missing tooth. This is called bone resorption. It can also change the way your face looks, changing its shape, and your lips may look asymmetrical and sunken.
Missing teeth can lead to boneloss of the lower & Upper jaw
What are zygomatic implants?
They are one of the longest implants that are normally used in the mouth (around 45-55 mm versus the conventional 10 to 15 mm) and are placed as conventional anchored implants but slightly up, in the zygomatic bone.
When is it appropriate to use zygomatic implants?
- Severe bone resorption of the maxilla.
- Usually in patients who have many years without teeth.
- Patients who have suffered an aggressive periodontal disease.
- In patients usually have little bone in the jaw
- When recovery time and treatment are important.
What are they?
Root prefabricated in titanium, which is placed on the site where there is no tooth. It is usually equal to or less than 8 mm.
Its use is subject to the patient’s anatomy when we can not place implants of regular size (10 mm or more) as resorption has occurred. We use short dental implants instead of bone grafts.
Advantages: Its advantages include a surgical technique with low morbidity, rapid bone healing as regular sized implants. Avoids having to perform bone grafts.
This adds bone to the whole jaw creating volume and improving the aesthetics of dental implants
Bone graft / gum graft
We can perform a Bone Graft and use regular implants.
Guided bone regeneration
Vertical and horizontal. Also guided tissue regeneration.
