zygomatic dental implants

Zygomatic dental implants can be a permanent solution for tooth loss for patients who can’t receive a conventional dental bridge. This type of dental implant is a new treatment that has become popular in the last two decades.

A modification of an All-on-4 procedure, zygomatic implants can be installed even when the patient’s jaw bones are weakened or shrunk.

How Much Do Zygomatic Dental Implants Cost in Turkey?

Zygomatic implants are expensive. The dentists need special training to install them, and the procedure is quite complicated. Furthermore, the materials for this type of implant also cost a lot. For example, the average price for zygomatic implants in the UK is £10,000.

But at Dentatur’s dental  clinic in Turkey, these implants cost £ 2000. It’s cheaper because Turkey has lower prices overall, and the subsidies help to lower the price of imported medical supplies. All of this makes Turkey an attractive destination for medical tourism.

What Are Zygomatic Dental Implants in Turkey?

Zygomatic dental implants are a subtype of the All-on-4 implant. This treatment allows installing a full jaw bridge on four screws. In the case of the zygomatic implant, the bridge replaces all the teeth on the upper jaw. Even patients who don’t have enough bone density in the upper jaw can have these implants installed.

The two anterior screws of these implants are of the regular type and are inserted into the front of the jaw bone, while the two back are elongated. These screws are installed in the cheekbones, where the bone is stronger and can support the implant. The cheekbones are also called the zygomatic arch, which is where these implants got their name from.

Benefits of Zygomatic Dental Implants

Benefits of Zygomatic Dental Implants

Zygomatic implants have some advantages compared to conventional ones:

  • Patients with shrunk bones of the upper jaw can get these implants without undergoing a complex, unreliable and invasive bone grafting procedure beforehand.
  • These implants are very reliable. The patients can be sure that the implants won’t fall out, as they are fixed to stronger bones than conventional implants.
  • The reported survival rate of these implants is 96% after 12 years after treatment.
  • It is possible to install the modern type of zygomatic implants in one day.

Who Is Suitable for Zygomatic Dental Implantation in Turkey?

Zygomatic implants are a type of All-on-4 dental implants that are suitable for people with shrunken bones in the upper jaw. For example, the jaw bones can shrink after tooth removal. The screws of zygomatic implants are long enough to be fixed in the sturdiest bones of the upper jaw – cheekbone and the front of the jaw bone.

The other criteria for getting these implants are good overall health and lack of conditions that can result in life-threatening side effects. An example of such a condition is haemophilia.

Patients must also be of suitable age. If they are too young, their bone is ongoing, and the implants won’t last without alignment issues. Some dentists may also refuse patients of advanced age if they suspect patients would have poor tolerance of the procedure.

Zygomatic Dental Implantation Stages

Zygomatic implants are installed using either a traditional two-stage method or a modern immediate loading protocol.

In the process commonly used today, the dentist will install the screws and a low-pressure bridge on the same day. This bridge is temporary, and its function is to provide the patient with functional teeth before the screws of the implant would integrate with the bone.  After this integration is complete, which can take up to eight months, the dentists will install a permanent dental bridge. The permanent bridge is made to be as similar to the patient’s natural teeth as possible.

After the treatment, the implants will last a long time with proper care.

How Long Do Zygomatic Dental Implants Last?

Zygomatic implants became popular in the early 2000s, though this treatment was first presented in 1988. Since then, there have been a number of studies on the long-term effectiveness of these implants. It has been found that these implants have a survival rate of more than 96% twelve years after installation. Thus, they last longer than conventional implants.

Zygomatic Dental Implants Care Tips

After installing the implants, the patients should follow the aftercare instructions provided by the Dentatur’s dentists. Proper care will minimise the chances of implant failure. At first, the patient should brush their teeth around the implant. A week after the installation, they can resume their regular teeth-brushing routine.

Just like natural teeth, implants must be brushed at least twice a day and flossed at least once daily.
