RECOVER YOUR SMILE IN ONE VISIT IN JUST 48 HOURS
Many total edentulous patients seek dental implant treatments aiming for an improvement in chewing and facial aesthetics. However, many of them present severe bone resorption, which is aggravated over time due to the use of a prosthesis, making it impossible to place conventional implants.
The situation can be the same even when there are teeth still present, and when these are affected by the serious infections or gum disease (periodontal) that cause the destruction of the maxillary bone.
There are currently two treatment possibilities in patients with severe bone resorption:
• Total Jaw Reconstruction (Large Grafts); or
• Zygomatic Implants.
The zygomatic anchorage technique is a new treatment modality for immediate loading rehabilitation without the need for bone grafts.
WHY ARE THESE IMPLANTS INDICATED?
Zygomatic Implants are indicated for patients whose bone amount is not enough for the standard type implants to be installed in the maxilla, especially in the posterior region. They serve to simplify and expedite the treatment since bone grafts are not needed
Immediate loading is one of the most feasible procedures to perform with Zygomatic Implants;
With the Immediate Loading on Zygomatic Implants, there is the possibility of installing a fixed prosthesis of the complete arch placed within 72 hours after the surgery day, bringing to patients immediate satisfaction with regard to function, aesthetics, senses, speech and to self-esteem, and self-esteem.
Surgery may be performed under local anesthesia with intravenous sedation or in a hospital environment and the patient may be discharged within a few hours after surgery. Within 72 hours after surgery, the patient will already be rehabilitated with the definitive prostheses.
The technique should be performed only by experienced professionals with hospital surgical training.
ADVANTAGES OF ZYGOMATIC IMPLANT
✔ ︎ Allows to treat patients with diabetes, osteoporosis or other health conditions usually contraindicated for the bone graft;
✔ ︎ The simple fact of not having to do bone graft in the patient, makes the Zygomatic Implant one of the most innovative techniques of the present time. This procedure prevents the specialized implant surgeon from having to remove bone removed from other parts of the body, so the period to restore the function and placement of the prosthesis that could take up to (01) a year is performed in 72 hours;
✔ ︎ In addition to all these health-related benefits, the Zygomatic Implant also brings back to the patient lip support, symmetrical lips keeping facial aesthetics in addition to the desire to smile;
✔ ︎ Implant treatments increase the patients’ ability to recover their self-esteem by tens of times, aid in the sensation of tasting food and re-establish the strength of chewing.
HOW IS THE INSTALLATION PROCESS OF ZYGOMATIC IMPLANTS?
The surgery performed to install dental implants in the chosen region (cheekbone) is done in a simple and uncomplicated way in an outpatient setting in the first hours of the morning. When the surgery occurs in the afternoon, the patient rests on bed, being released the morning of the following day;
WHAT IS THE SURVIVORSHIP RATE OF THESE IMPLANTS?
Zygomatic implants also have high survivorship rates.
A long-term study shows that the mean cumulative survivorship rate of these implants is 95.21% after 10 years.
