Zygomatic implants are a procedure used for patients who are not suitable for other dental implants, all because of bone loss. They are the best way to get safe, natural-looking, economical teeth.
Differently from other procedures, when using zygomatic implants you can eat and chew food within 72 hours.

Zygomatic implants have four establishing points to fix a denture and are longer than other regular implants.
Before deciding if you want to want to get your zygomatic implants in Tirana, a careful and accurate diagnosis is needed. This kind of treatment is only used when there is severe bone loss in the jaw. The bone reduction preventing the placement of simple dental implants is the biggest sign of having to use zygomatic implants. Furthermore information, you can always contact our clinic and we will answer any question you have.
Please note that zygomatic implants should be put on and removed for many years, which means, they are used in people who have used total prostheses before.
Considering the fact these patients have been toothless for a very long time, the bone will have now reached the point of complete melting- which leads us to believe that we cannot implant bone grafting due to their state. In cases like that, it is a method used for patients that find using removable prostheses difficult.
This type of procedure is also used in patients who have lost their teeth to severe health conditions.
Lastly, zygomatic implants can be applied to patients whose jaw is determined as unsuitable.
Below you can find all the steps needed to perform the procedure of zygomatic implants:
Tomographs are taken once the patient arrives in the clinic to check the jawbone structure, and the bone distance to the upper jaw, and do the right implant adjustments.
Per the adjustments, a prostheses is done to show the patient how his teeth would look after the zygomatic implant surgery. Once decided they like it, the teeth get transferred to the computer environment in 3D.
Next, the surgery begins. To not feel any pain and avoid any discomfort general sedation is used. The operation which takes hours helps to place the zygomatic implants in the upper jaw. The way zygomatic implants are applied is similar to other dental implant surgeries.
Once the zygomatic implant emplacement begins (before the tooth extraction), the patient’s films are developed and evaluated and an idea is created regarding the quality of the jawbone. Then, the type of implant needed is decided.
To be acknowledged: This is a very important step seeing as implants are produced in different shapes and sizes following the situation’s severity.
After the tooth extraction is done, start the implant insertion. (Also to be acknowledged: the hygiene of the mouth shall be provided before this step begins).
After the necessary hygiene is provided, starts the opening of the gums where the implants will be inserted through a surgical operation.
When seeing the jawbone, it is also seen that the implants create enough space in the place it will be inserted without the need of overloading the bone. This is when the screwing of the implants begins.
The opened gums are stitched and the implants are “camouflaged” with closure sews.
Note: The waiting period varies from one to three months depending on the implant brands.
After the zygomatic implantation is done, you must follow the same regulation as other dental implants. Which in other words means:
Normal eating can only start after three months when a permanent prostheses is emplaced.
A big part of the surgery taking place and being successful is aftercare. Dental hygiene after the zygomatic implementation is essential. Below you will see what is needed for it:
Note: Do not use Listerine as it contains alcohol which may affect wound healing.
Zygomatic implants work by totally neglecting the upper jawbone and using instead extra-long implants which are anchored into the cheekbones. They are emplaced near the bicuspid teeth in the mouth, the fourth and the fifth teeth on the upper jaw from the center of the mouth, towards the back.
The cheekbone itself, also known as the zygomatic bone, is a thick bone with great stability to support the implants for a lasting, naturally-looking appearance. Seeing as the bone in the upper jaw is normally very soft, this procedure provides a stable and sturdy treatment option for dental implant renovation on the upper row of teeth. The steady, tenacious structure of the cheekbone makes this procedure calculable and safe.
The alveolar bone, which is found at the back of the upper jaw is quite prone to atrophy, compared to other areas. The zygomatic implants avoid this bone and the need for it to be grafted, differently from other dental implants.
In comparison with bone grafting procedures, the zygomatic implant surgery is less invasive, it is quicker to recover from and it doesn’t require the patient to wear a denture or go toothless for any amount of time. Additionally, it causes no discomfort.
The advantages of the zygomatic implant will be listed below:
To be noted: a healthy structure of the maxilla is needed to proceed with this method. Any maxillary problem will first need rehabilitation which will be determined by the dentist.
Zygomatic implants are one type of implant that is workable for any patient who’s considering dental implants and it has much more benefits than any other dental implant option.
Zygomatic implants will work well in patients who have a little jawbone to work with, on the upper jaw, but they are also suitable for any other patient who needs simple dental implants. It is suggested that you talk with your dentist regarding the best dental implant option, which are the advantages and disadvantages of each, including the prices.
Taking into consideration the fact that zygomatic implants are inserted into the dense cheek bone which provides maximum support, the success rate is extremely good. These types of implants cease bone resorption with age or other medical conditions, thence why the zygomatic endurance is longer than other regular implantations which have a bigger chance of being affected by jawbone modulation with age or other medical conditions.
