impianti zigomatici

- Not possible to have fixed theet ?

- You have been told your bone volume is not sufficient to place dental implants ?

- You don't want to undergo a bone graft surgery ?

 

There is a solution, ZYGOMATIC IMPLANTS

 

The zygomatic implants anchor the zygomatic bone. Thanks to these implants it is possible to solve the problem of severe maxillary atrophy with only one surgery and get a fixed provisional prosthesis within 24-48 hours, giving an high functional and esthetic comfort to patients with the highest success rate.

Dr. Antonio Mingione performs oral and maxillofacial surgery placing dental implants and zygomatic implants even in the most complex cases.

Frequently asked questions:

WHICH ARE THE ADVANTAGES OF ZYGOMATIC IMPLANTS ?

  • - Reduced time
  • - High success rate
  • - Low invasiveness
  • - Very high functional and aesthetic comfort
  • - Low post-operative pain
  • - Immediate loading
  • - Lower cost compared to bone reconstruction

HOW LONG ZYGOMATIC IMPLANTS HAVE BEEN USED ?

Prof. Brånemark (Sweden) first used zygomatic implants on oncologic patients in 1988. After that his technique was studied and improved to be used on atrophic patients, and performed through the years since today.

DOES THE OPERATION REQUIRE LOCAL OR GENERAL ANESTHESIA ?

Placing more zygomatic implants in the same patient is generally done under general anesthesia. If it’s not necessary the operation can be done under sedation and local anesthesia, depending on the state of health and collaboration of the patient.

CAN THE SURGERY CAUSE SCARS ON THE FACE ?

No, because the implants are inserted from the inside of the mouth.

CAN THE SURGERY CAUSE POST-OPERATIVE PAIN ?

The pain is mild, easily managed with common painkillers and lasts a few days. The patient can talk and eat immediately.

CAN FACIAL AESTHETICS BE ALTERED ?

The soft tissues will have internal support thanks to zygomatic implants. The face will regain tone and freshness, resulting in facial aesthetics improvement.

CAN THE ZYGOMATIC BONE HAVE RESORPTION OVER TIME ?

The zygomatic bone, unlike the jaw, does not present alterations over time.

Clinical cases

Zygomatic Implants 1

F.A. 75 Years
The patient came to our attention with compromised dental elements in both upper and lower jaw. She has been told previously two complete dentures would have been the ideal treatment. But her desire is to have fixed teeth, without undergoing more surgery sessions to regenerate the missing bone. The case has been solved with an implant-prosthetic rehabilitation supported by two zygomatic implants and two conventional implants (Hybrid technique). Although the bone volume might seem sufficient, the bone quality evaluated during surgery was not sufficient to rely exclusively on the maxilla. The mandible was rehabilitated with ALL ON 4 technique and finally was performed a mentoplasty augmentation to give her a harmonic profile of the face. The patient is very happy with the result.

Severe Atrophy

Fixed Prosthesis Toronto Bridge (Metal-Ceramic)

Zygomatic Implants 2

F.P. 55 Years
The Patient had an upper denture and a lower removable prosthesis (overdenture) for about 10 years. She came to our attention complaining about the instability of the two prostheses, making her feel very embarrassed to relate with other people. The maxilla is severely atrophic. The upper jaw was rehabilitated with 4 zygomatic implants immediately loaded with a Toronto Bridge. The mandible was then rehabilitated with ALL on 4 technique.

In these cases we pay attention not only to the function and aesthetics of the smile but to give the patient an harmonic profile of the face as well.

Zygomatic Implants 3

L.L. 68 Years.
The patient has a severe maxillary atrophy, caused also by the presence of dentures worn for about 10 years.

In this case were placed 4 zygomatic implants in the maxilla (Quad technique) and 4 implants in the jaw (ALL on 4 technique). The patient is very happy because it was possible to finish surgical and prosthetic treatment in just one day.

Zygomatic Implants 4

M.C. 69 Years
The patient has a severe maxillary atrophy. She previously undergone bone reconstruction surgery, unsuccessfully.

She had to wear a denture for about 2 years waiting to find an answer to her desire to have fixed teeth.

It was possible to meet her expectations giving her an implant-prosthetic rehabilitation supported by zygomatic implants and placing fixed teeth the same day of the operation.

The teeth in the lower jaw had a high mobility index. The case was completed with ALL ON 4 technique with immediate prosthetic loading.

In this case is evident how a proper and harmonic facial profile was achieved by restoring the volume of missing bone with the prosthesis supported by zygomatic implants. The soft tissues regained their tone and the patient said she looks much younger now.

Zygomatic Implants 5

C.S. 69 Years
Patient with severe maxillary atrophy and wearing dentures for about 10 years. He would like to have fixed teeth.

The bone volume of the maxilla is not sufficient to place conventional dental implants. The case was solved with an implant-prosthetic rehabilitation supported by 4 zygomatic implants in the upper jaw (Quad technique) and 4 dental implants in the lower jaw (ALL ON 4 technique).

Zygomatic Implants 6

Patient with severe maxillary atrophy.
It was initially proposed a bone reconstruction with bilateral maxillary Sinus Lift and placing dental implants after 6 months. The patient would rather undergo one surgery and have fixed teeth at the same time. Also for this reason the case was solved with 2 zygomatic implants and 2 conventional implants (Hybrid technique) in the maxilla and 4 conventional implants (ALL ON 4 technique) in the mandible, both immediately loaded. Fixed prostheses in Zirconia-Ceramic in both arches.

Zygomatic Implants 7

M.R. 53 Years
The Patient had a partial removable prosthesis on implants (overdenture) for several years. She came to our attention presenting mobility of the prosthesis due to bone loss around implants, which have been removed. The previous implant failure and associated atrophy of the upper jaw did not allow a rehabilitation using conventional implants for the second time. The case has been solved with 4 zygomatic implants and immediate prosthetic loading. The patient is very happy to get fixed teeth in a single session, improving not only chewing function but also aesthetics of the smile.
