Depending on the outcome of your diagnostic x-rays, extra long dental implants may be offered in cases where the amount of bone available in the upper jaw is insufficient.
These implants are called all-on-4 Zygomatic implants and are anchored into the check bone, providing an alternative to grafting procedures in the upper jaw.
The procedure to insert Zygomatic dental implants is performed under a general anaesthetic and placed by a specialist oral and maxillofacial surgeon. As with the All-on-4 technique, new teeth can be connected to them within three days of the surgery.
In some cases the upper jaw may be very deficient in bone even in the anterior region. For these cases double zygoma implants may be inserted into both sides of the available check bone to support a full upper set of replacement teeth.
As with single zygoma this procedure is performed under general anaesthetic together with a specialist oral and maxillofacial surgeon. A full set of immediate teeth can be connected to the implants after 1-3 days.
