If you have lost multiple teeth due to trauma or the bone loss associated with gum disease, dentists in the past may have told you that you were not a good candidate for tooth replacement with dental implants.
Traditional vs. Zygomatic Dental Implants in 85254
Indeed, a traditional dental implant can't be successfully supported when there's not enough jawbone present. However, zygomatic dental implants offer patients with severe bone loss a new option for restoring their teeth, their appearance, and their dental health.
Instead of using the jawbone for support, zygomatic dental implants use the dense bone located in your cheek known as the "zygoma." These implants are extended in length so they can reach the zygomatic bone for placement. Dr. Sheth will also place traditional implants in between to provide additional support for your restoration.
