Zygomatic Implants Q & A

What are zygomatic implants?

Zygomatic implants are dental implants that are much longer than conventional implants and engage the cheekbones instead of the jaw bone. This is a well-studied and proven method that works very well when done correctly. Dr. Yusupov offers such implants to replace missing or extracted permanent teeth and give you the smile of your dreams. He has many years of experience placing dental implants for patients of all ages. Additionally, Dr.Yusupov lectures nationally and teaches other surgeons how to perform this technique. 

What are the benefits of zygomatic implants?

The benefits you can expect when choosing zygomatic implants at Gold Coast Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery include:

  • No more gaps
  • Easier chewing
  • Clearer speech
  • No teeth shifting
  • Strong, long-lasting artificial teeth
  • No need for bone grafting or sinus lifts
  • Utmost safety
  • Long-lasting results
  • Minimal downtime
  • Better quality of life
  • Self-confidence
  • Cost-effectiveness
  • Fewer procedures needed

While traditional dental implants require adequate bone mass to ensure stability, Dr. Yusupov places zygomatic dental implants into your zygomatic bone (cheekbone) to create a stable foundation if you don’t have enough jawbone. This is done to avoid performing sinus lifts, also known as sinus grafts or augmentation. For the right patient, choosing a zygomatic implant can save as much as six months of time and get the patient to teeth faster. 

You can receive new artificial teeth the same day as zygomatic dental implant placement to avoid scheduling additional procedures.

Are zygomatic implants right for me?

To determine if zygomatic dental implants are the right option for you, Dr. Yusupov reviews your medical history, oral health history, and desired results. He examines your mouth and teeth and recommends dental X-rays or other imaging procedures before tailoring your treatment plan.

What happens during the placement of zygomatic implants?

Dr. Yusupov offers IV sedation or in some cases general anesthesia to calm and relax you before dental implant placement. He also numbs the treatment area and places dental implants into your zygomatic bone while you rest comfortably or fall asleep.

He can then attach new crowns, bridges, or dentures to the implants to perfect your smile the same day.

What should I expect afterward?

After the procedure, it’s important to follow your post-care instructions and have a family member or friend drive you home. Take your medicines as directed, follow a soft-food diet initially, and take it easy. Follow up with Dr. Yusupov as needed to ensure proper healing of your new implants and smile.
