Zygomatic Implants

Zygomatic Implants are the ideal solution for missing teeth with significant bone loss.

Zygomatic implants offer a good tooth replacement alternative if you don’t have enough bone for traditional dental implants. At Carolinas Centers for Oral & Facial Surgery, our doctors can use zygomatic implants to give you a natural-looking smile, help you eat better, and improve your quality of life. Our oral and maxillofacial surgeons look forward to working with you to improve your oral health.

What are Zygomatic Implants? 

Zygomatic implants are innovative dental implants designed to replace teeth in the upper jaw when you have suffered severe bone loss. 

These types of implants are slightly tilted and much longer than traditional dental implants. They also anchor to the cheekbone, known as the zygoma, instead of embedding into the jawbone.

This anchoring technique makes them an ideal solution to replace missing or failing teeth when there is considerable bone loss— the zygoma is made up of very dense bone and provides ample support for implants.
