Dental implants are highly sought-after because of their high success rate, natural-looking appearance, and spectacular ability to restore someone’s smile. Unfortunately, not all patients have enough stable bone in their jaw for an implant to be placed. If you’re needing an implant but have suffered from bone loss or your maxilla bone is too weak to support a dental implant, zygomatic implants make it possible to smile again.
How a Zygomatic Implant Works
These implants are inserted into your zygomatic bone, also known as your cheekbone. It’s an extra-long implant that goes right through or next to the sinus and anchors into the thick, solid zygomatic bone. This procedure has a long track record of success and has been used in the United States for over two decades. It can also be used as an alternative to bone grafting in patients with severe bone loss.
It is a safe and predictable procedure, and Dr. Bobst is specially trained in placing dental implants into the zygomatic bone. Our comfortable and pristine Boise, ID, office is equipped with all of the necessary tools to ensure you have a safe and effective dental implant procedure.
