Advanced Dental Implant Treatment
Some patients are not immediately suitable for dental implants, due to insufficient bone mass or density to adequately retain the implants. In these cases, there are several options, including sinus lift and bone grafting, however a third option is to use zygomatic implants. These implants are slightly longer and engage into the cheek bone rather than the jaw bone to secure teeth. Where appropriate, this allows the patient to avoid the additional surgery associated with sinus lifts and bone grafting.
