a solution for people with dramatic bone loss

Discover the Remedy to Severe Upper Jaw Bone Loss

Medical and dental conditions—such as severe bone loss from missing teeth, head and neck cancer and the effects of treatment, medication use, and systemic diseases—often make tooth replacement with conventional dental implants unattainable. If you’ve been told that you’re not able to receive dental implants due to a compromising health situation, worry no longer. We have a solution for you!

Our oral surgeons recommend zygomatic dental implants as an alternative to extensive bone grafting. As highly experienced surgeons, we can provide full arch solutions for medically compromised patients and greater restorative options with zygomatic dental implants. By offering zygomatic dental implants, we can vastly improve your sense of wellbeing and quality of life through full arch tooth replacement.

Are You A Candidate?


As the gold standard, dental implants are not a one-size-fits-all restoration; they’re advanced and complex tools that require the knowledge of doctors experienced in implant placement and dental technology. As oral surgeons, our expertise in surgical aspects of dental implants is far-reaching, along with a thorough understanding of the anatomy and physiology of the face, and we’re equipped to provide implant care for you even if you’re a severe case or are medically compromised.

We can usually extract the tooth and place the implant at the same time, resulting in fewer visits for you. In addition, by harvesting growth factors from your own blood and adding them to bone grafting material, we can ensure your implants heal and are ready for a dental crown in as few as two months instead of 13! To assist us in the placement of dental implants, we utilize cone beam CT technology. These three-dimensional scans of your head give us an accurate representation of the bone levels in your jaw for the best placement of the actual implant. By using this advanced technology in combination with our surgical expertise and IV sedation, we’re able to restore any number of missing teeth to full function and in significantly less time—giving you more time out of the chair.

See How Zygomatic Dental Implants Can Work for You

Zygomatic dental implants rarely require bone grafting because they’re placed into your cheek (zygomatic) bones instead of your upper jaw bone. Equaling the length of three or four traditional implants, zygomatic dental implants are placed directly next to the sinus cavity or through it, depending on your specific treatment plan. Once anchored in place, zygomatic dental implants, along with two to four traditional implants in the upper front jaw, provide vital support for a full arch prosthesis.

Because patients needing zygomatic dental implants have suffered from extensive tooth loss, we use advanced technology like the cone bean CT scan to capture a high-quality 3D representation of your bone structure and sinus cavities to plan your placement surgery. Placing zygomatic dental implants requires meticulous planning and careful execution to ensure success. It also requires a high level of specialized surgical training and skill, implant experience, and a thorough understanding of facial anatomy. As oral surgeons with additional training from nationally-renowned dental implant centers, we have expertise in all these areas, are clinically trained and licensed to administer IV sedation, and have extensive surgical experiencing placing implants when severe and complex medical and dental conditions are present.
