Whether you have severe bone loss due to extensive periodontal disease or long-term traditional denture use, zygomatic dental implants may be an ideal solution. These dental implants provide a well-documented alternative for tooth loss in the upper back arch, with both two-stage and immediate load protocols available.
By bypassing the need for bone grafting and sinus lift procedures, zygomatic implants offer a shorter and more comfortable treatment process. At Alpha Dental Practice & Implant Center, we specialize in placing zygomatic dental implants, allowing us to help numerous patients who were previously deemed ineligible for traditional implants. Take advantage of a complimentary zygomatic implant consultation or second opinion to explore your options and regain a new smile and improved quality of life.
Zygomatic dental implants offer a unique approach to tooth replacement by anchoring implants in the cheekbones instead of the jawbone. This eliminates the need for altering the jawbone and provides stable support for fixed teeth. With longer implants ranging up to 60mm, zygomatic implants can accommodate replacement teeth effectively. When performed by skilled clinicians familiar with 3D anatomies, such as Dr. Tarek Assi and Dr. Maya Georges Assi, both two-stage and immediate load protocols have high success rates and minimal complications.
We believe that every patient deserves a chance to restore their smile and oral health. We have encountered cases where patients were initially deemed ineligible for dental implants due to significant bone loss. However, Drs. Tarek Assi and Maya Georges Assi have never turned away a patient based solely on this factor.
Instead, we take a comprehensive approach to finding viable solutions. With advanced surgical techniques and innovative technologies, such as bone grafting and zygomatic implants, we can address even the most challenging cases. Our commitment to providing personalized care ensures that we explore all options to help patients achieve their dream smile, regardless of their initial qualifications.
Transnasal implants, also known as nasal implants, are a type of dental implant used for patients with severe bone loss in the upper jaw, particularly in the posterior region. Unlike traditional dental implants that are inserted into the jawbone, transnasal implants are anchored through the nasal floor into the maxillary sinus. This innovative technique provides a stable foundation for dental restorations, such as full-arch prostheses, offering a viable solution for patients with limited bone structure in the upper jaw.
Pterygoid implants are a specialized type of dental implant used in cases of severe bone loss in the posterior maxilla. They are inserted into the pterygoid bone, a dense and strong region located behind the upper jaw. Pterygoid implants provide exceptional stability and support for dental restorations, making them an effective option for patients with limited bone structure in the back of the mouth.
Zygomatic dental implants may sound more invasive than conventional treatments, however, they can typically be placed in one surgical procedure. Since they don’t require additional bone grafting, Drs. Tarek Assi and Maya Georges Assi can often complete the process and provide a functional, beautiful new smile in less time than conventional treatment.
As with any dental implant surgery performed at Alpha Dental Practice & Implant Center, the first step is an oral exam and scans using cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT). The CBCT scan is used to analyze your underlying bone structure, nerves, and sinus cavities and help meticulously plan implant placement. We offer sedation dentistry to ensure your surgery is as comfortable and anxiety free as possible.
During your procedure, dental implants are strategically placed in predetermined locations to ensure maximum stability and protect adjacent structures. Before you leave, we’ll fit you with a natural-looking, temporary TeethXpress® restoration. After healing and integration of dental implants with the underlying bone, you’ll receive your permanent restoration. Like the many other patients who received zygomatic implants in Coral Springs, FL from Drs. Tarek Assi and Maya Georges Assi, you’ll enjoy their amazing functional and aesthetic benefits for years to come or even a lifetime!
