What are zygomatic bone implants, and how do they differ from traditional dental implants?

Zygomatic dental implants are designed to provide implant support in the maxilla or upper jaw bone in extensive resorption bone and lack of implant support due to resection of the upper jaw’s part due to tumours or cysts. Zygomatic dental implants are anchored in check bone or zygomatic bone and provide support and stability to restorative prosthetics so they can withstand masticatory force during chewing, in compromised upper jaw bone health.

In the dental care centre London’s expert dental specialists completely understand the need for stable restorative prosthetic placement to compensate for teeth’ functional needs, especially with extensive bone resorption. Our expert oral and implant surgeon expertly places zygomatic dental implants into the cheekbone after carefully evaluating bone health and considering the anatomical landmarks of the upper jaw such as the maxillary sinus to avoid implant failure and complications.

In zygomatic dental implants, long-size dental implants are used with an average length of 30 to 52.2mm for better biomechanical integration in the zygomatic bone and provide durable support and stability in moderate to extensive bone resorption without additional bone augmentation procedures.

What are the clinical steps during the zygomatic dental implant placement?

Dental Care Centre is London’s leading dental clinic that provides committed and satisfied dental services. our expert dental surgeons skillfully perform surgical procedures for zygomatic dental implant placement to get better implant support and stability in extensive resorbed upper jaw conditions. our expert specialist team efficiently performs zygomatic implant placement surgery through a proper treatment plan, to make effective and comfortable zygomatic implant placement while minimising the risk of complications.

Initial assessment

Detail and careful assessment are necessary for the successful placement of dental implants. our expert implant and oral surgeon takes a complete dental and medical history, carefully examines the oral health and bone condition, identifies the cause behind jaw bone resorption and estimates the success of zygomatic dental implant placement.

For Accurate findings, our dentist also recommends radiographs such as cone beam radiographs and OPG for correct estimation of bone height, width, and density to carefully evaluate contraindication conditions such as maxillary sinus expansion that can cause maxillary sinus infection after placement of the zygomatic dental implant. In contraindications, our dental specialist chooses alternate dental procedures for the placement of dental implants such as sinus lifting or bone augmentation to avoid complications.


During the consultation, our expert surgeon discusses with the patient all the available options their advantages and associated risks based on initial findings. Consultation is the best opportunity for the patient to explain the surgeon’s treatment expectations and clear any doubts and concerns regarding implant placement surgery.

Treatment plan

Based on initial diagnosis and consultation, our expert surgeon plans a systemic route for surgical placement of the implants in the zygomatic bone. Prosthodontics also designs restorative prosthetics according to patient preference and dental need, to restore aesthetics and function. Our expert surgeon explains all the necessary steps of the zygomatic dental implant, from placement of the implant to the recovery process. After ensuring that the patient understands all the procedures of the zygomatic dental implant placement, our trained implant team schedules an appointment with instructions about preoperative preparation.

Surgical placement of zygomatic dental implant

On the day of surgery, our train staff takes vitals such as temperature, heart rate blood pressure and blood sugar to avoid any dental emergency.

Then our expert oral and implant surgeon performed comfortable and pain-free surgery under local anaesthesia and other dental sedatives, according to the patient’s needs.

Our experienced Surgeon, carefully incised upper jaw soft tissue, raised the flap and skillfully placed the metal implant post into the bone at the appropriate angle and location of zygomatic bone to utilise maximum support for a dental implant. After successful implant placement, they stitched the incision for better healing.

Postoperative care

Our dental specialist explains to the patient the importance of postoperative care, regular dental visits and maintenance of proper oral hygiene for successful smooth healing of zygomatic dental implants. Also gives necessary post-operative instructions such as taking a soft diet, gently cleaning the implant-placed area with the help of a soft brush, rinsing with mouthwash once a day and maintaining regular dental visits to monitor the healing and progressive integration of the implant with the surrounding bone.

Implant healing and osteointegration

Osteointegration is a process by which bone is regenerated around the implant and helps implant integration into the surrounding bone. Our expert surgeon regularly monitors the healing and stability of implants in regular dental visits with the help of radiographs. After the successful placement of the implant, our experienced prosthodontics record an impression for the fabrication of restorative prosthetics and send it to a dental laboratory for further processing.

Placement of restoration

After fabrication of restoration such as crown, bridge or denture according to patient dental need and treatment plan. Our Prosthodontics place restoration with the help of an abutment or a connector that fixes the prosthetics with a zygomatic dental implant. After placement of the restorative prosthetic, our dental specialist checks the final fitting and performs necessary adjustments if required to provide effective and comfortable teeth function and restore a radiant smile.

I have excellent experience at this dental care centre. I have been attending since I came to live in London since 2009. Currently I'm going through a teeth straightening process which I'm so relieved is going well and I very appreciate all the support and transparency re costs that I'm receiving. I especially appreciate that this is an NHS dental practice.

My visit to the Dental Care Centre on Friday was a very happy experience, the surgery was very clean, receptionists very friendly and my dentist was very attentive.. I only had a check up, with work suggested for my follow up appointment, but I felt I was in good hands and i am someone who has an inbuilt fear of dentists.. recommended

I have been using this dental care centre since 2018 during my pregnancy and until now. I have always been looked after by front desk staff and dentist themselves. They have an excellent service.Now my son has had his 3rd appointment for dental check and being 3.5yrs old he's always been comfortable attending this clinic.Sad to see our dentist leave Dr Kumar, he's an excellent dentist towards our care. Hope he'll enjoy more of his family time.Met our new dentist last week and my son already created a bond with her.Thank you staff for your continuous service. I'm just lucky to have a good rapport with you all. 😀
