If you’ve been told that dental implants aren’t an option for your missing teeth because of extensive bone loss, then zygoma dental implants could be the solution you’ve been searching for. Unlike conventional designs that mimic the shape and location of natural tooth roots, zygomatic, or zygoma dental implants utilize the bone support of surrounding structures in your mouth, maximizing the healthy structures that are already there. The unique design extends into the zygomatic arch of the upper jaw, allowing them to anchor fixed restorations such as full arch prosthetics. Dr. Carlos Medina is one of the few dentists qualified in our area to offer zygomatic implants and has over a decade of experience offering this procedure to patients, no matter their current situation. Zygoma dental implants can literally transform your smile and improve your quality of life.

This renders them candidates only for removable dentures or bridges, unless advanced bone grafting can be done to accommodate implants, the preferred tooth replacement option. Even with bone grafting some patients are still not qualified for implants, even though they offer the most health, functional and aesthetic benefits. Once Dr. Medina determines you are a candidate for zygoma dental implants you can look forward to a number of benefits:
