Dental implants are now commonly used for replacing missing teeth in various clinical situations. Dental implants are surgically inserted in the jawbones. Unfortunately, restrictions have appeared in the use of oral implants. One of them is the lack of sufficient bone volume, especially in the posterior maxilla.
Several surgical procedures have been developed to increase local bone volume in deficient anatomical regions, including total/segmental bone on lays, osteotomy with bone grafts and grafting of the maxillary sinus with autogenous bone and/or bone substitute.
These techniques pose a series of inconveniences, such as the need for multiple surgical interventions, the use of extraoral bone donor sites (e.g., iliac crest or skull) - with the morbidity involved in surgery of these zones - and the long duration during which patients remain without rehabilitation during the graft consolidation and healing interval. These factors complicate patient acceptance of the restorative treatment and limit the number of procedures carried out.
Designed specifically for patients with bone loss, zygomatic implants are tilted and much longer than traditional dental implants. While traditional implants are placed in the jawbone, zygomatic dental implants are placed in the cheekbone which is very dense and provides excellent support. This difference in placement location means that zygomatic implants can provide a secure foundation to support teeth when older technology and traditional dental implants do not work due to bone loss.
The placement of implants in the zygomatic bone as an alternative to maxillary reconstruction with autogenous bone grafts has been considered a viable option in the rehabilitation of atrophic maxillae. This procedure requires considerable surgical expertise.
