Getting tired of your dentures is perfectly normal. You want the ability to eat and chew whatever you like as well as having a great smile and the confidence to go with it. So, you turn to the most common alternative, implants.
However, implants require a minimum amount of bone density, something a lot of patients don’t have. This is because the lack of supporting teeth in your bone can lead to bone degeneration and loss. Under these circumstances, it’s often the case that patients are turned away by their dentists for implant treatment. So, if you don’t meet the requirements, where can you turn?
Here at Woodborough House, we can provide you with the answer if your bone tissue rules you out; an advanced treatment using zygomatic implants.
Our expert team anchor zygomatic implants in the cheekbones where bone density is rarely an issue. Your cheekbones are dense and robust, providing perfect foundations for your zygomatic implants. This is also why we use longer titanium rods, so they reach from your gum to your cheekbone to provide extra strength to your new smile.
The placement of zygomatic implants is a highly specialised procedure requires a skilled surgeon with expertise in this area of implantology. Our zygomatic team includes dually qualified doctor and dental oral maxillofacial surgeon Dr Guy Mclelean and specialist prosthodontist Dr Nick Fahey. You will be in the best possible hands with our expert-led team.
Zygomatic implants are the less painful alternative to notoriously painful treatments like bone grafts. You’ll also be offered IV sedation; an option which gently puts you into a relaxed, semi-sedated mindset, so you won’t feel a thing.
