In cases where the amount of available bone in the upper jaw is insufficient, extra long implants can be anchored in the cheekbone.
These implants are called Zygoma and are a good alternative to bone building procedures in the upper jaw which are often very time and resource consuming. The traditional method of building a jawbone with a bone graft extends the healing time from 6-9 months.
The procedure for inserting Zygoma implants is usually performed under general anesthesia. As with the conventional All-on-4 technique, new teeth can be mounted on the implants on the same day as the operation.
