Zygomatic implants with Faresh
Say “Yes!” to
This news can be devastating if you’ve been told that you can’t have dental implants. Implants are the most effective way to replace missing teeth and restore the look and function of your smile. But you shouldn’t resign yourself to a lifetime of ill-fitting dentures. Zygomatic implants may be the solution.
The most common barrier to getting dental implants is insufficient density in your jaw. This often occurs when the bone becomes depleted after you’ve lost teeth. When there’s not enough bone there, it’s not always possible to place conventional implants.
Fortunately, there is another implant placement option. If you need replacement upper teeth, I can place zygomatic implants. This revolutionary procedure means I can rebuild your smile when your jaw isn’t able to hold the implants.

What Are Zygomatic Implants?
Just like traditional dental implants, zygomatic implants are titanium posts. The main difference is that they’re much longer. Zygomatic implants are designed to be placed at an angle. By entering at the proper gradient, I can access the zygomatic bone (better known as the cheekbone).
The cheekbone offers excellent bone density. Unlike the jaw, your cheek won’t deteriorate after losing teeth. Harnessing this bone for support gives your new smile the strength and support to enjoy your favourite foods and smile with confidence again.
Zygomatic implants are typically placed at an angle on either side of your upper jaw. I’ll vertically position up to four standard implants at the front to accompany these.
Your zygomatic implants will support natural-looking, custom-made replacement teeth that look and feel amazing.
The Benefits of Zygomatic Implants
Zygomatic implants are a fantastic option if you need several upper teeth replaced
and you’ve previously been told you can’t have implants. Here’s why.
Reaches the Parts That Other Implants Don’t
Zygomatic implants are much longer than the standard titanium rods used to support teeth. They make use of an untapped part of your face; the cheekbone. This gives your new teeth much greater support, even if it’s thin or weak.
No Need for a Sinus Lift or Bone Graft
Usually, when your jaw can’t support implants, you’ll need a bone graft or sinus liftto stimulate bone regrowth. But bone augmentation increases your treatment time as the restoration process takes several months.
Zygomatic implants aren’t reliant on grafts, as I can use the abundant bone in the cheek to support your new smile.
A Smile You’ll Love
I use high-quality, made-to-measure replacement teeth that look just like the real thing. Once I’ve placed your new smile, no one will ever know they’re not your natural teeth. Even you’ll forget you have implants!
Eat What You Like
If you’ve lost teeth and you’ve been told that you’re not a suitable implant candidate, the prospect of wearing dentures for life may get you down. Dentures have a reputation for slipping while you eat, and some food will always be off-limits because it’s too hard to chew.
With zygomatic implants, nothing is off the menu. From steaks to al dente pasta, peanuts to crisps, chewing is straightforward.
The Zygomatic Implant Process Explained
As with all treatments, I’ll start with an assessment of your oral health. Here, I’ll take scans of your teeth, jaw, and cheekbone. Using these scans, I’ll check your suitability for implants and plan the procedure. At this point, I’ll calculate the angle needed to access the cheekbone.
Before I start the procedure, you’ll be given an anaesthetic so you won’t feel a thing.
Next, I’ll start placing the implants. The exact number of implants needed will vary, and I may use up to four standard implants in conjunction with the longer, angled rods.
Finally, I’ll place your realistic new teeth. At first, you’ll have a temporary restoration until the lab completes your permanent bespoke teeth. Rest assured, your stop-gap smile will look great and function well— but if you like them, just wait until you experience the final set!
