Zygomatic Dental Implants
Not enough bone or poor bone volume for dental implants? You may need zygomatic dental implants.
If you’ve been told that you don’t have enough bone or poor bone volume, we can help. Thanks to advances in research and the subsequent development of zygomatic dental implants, patients who have been told they are not candidates for conventional implants can be treated successfully by our practice. Very few surgeons in the world are skilled at the placement of zygomatic implants but at Full Mouth Implants, Dr. Jack T. Krauser is trained in zygomatic implant placement and restorations, so we can provide zygomatic implants to patients affected with advanced bone loss.
What are Zygomatic Dental Implants ?
Designed specifically for patients with advanced bone loss, zygomatic implants are tilted and much longer than traditional dental implants. While traditional implants are placed in the jawbone, zygomatic dental implants are designed to extend internally to the cheekbone, which is very dense and provides excellent support. Zygomatic implants offer a strong and secure foundation to support teeth in situations where earlier methods of care and traditional dental implants are deemed inadequate due to extensive bone loss.
Will I Need Bone Grafts? ...NO!
We utilize the “Graftless Protocol” as proposed by leaders in the field; Drs Malo, Balshi, Bedrossian, Salvoni, Smiler, Rosen, and Holtzclaw. Traditionally, patients with bone loss require bone grafting procedures, which can add six months to a year to their treatment and has a high failure rate. However, with zygomatic implants, we can routinely and successfully provide patients with full mouth restorations the very next day without the need for a bone grafting procedure. Keeping in mind that very few surgeons in the world regularly place zygomatic dental implants, you can rest assured that Dr. Jack T. Krauser is well equipped to provide the skilled and expert care that’s required.
Why Consider Zygomatic Dental Implants ?
If you would like dental implants but think you are not a candidate due to lack of supporting bone, then you should consider zygomatic dental implants. From attaining a complete and beautiful smile to once again chewing and speaking with ease, zygomatic implants mean you too can quickly enjoy the benefits of a new smile.
Remember, at Full Mouth Implants, Dr. Jack T. Krauser can help you. A beautiful smile begins today.
