Zygoma means malar bone.The cheek bone.Normally when we are planning for implant treatment in the upper jaw we need sufficient bone height and width for placing the implants.Due to poor quality of bone available in the upper jaw and also the presence of sinus in the upper jaw we always have poor bone in the upper jaw.So in order to place implants when there is no option to place the regular implants ,instead of the jaw bone we use the cheek bone with longer size implants as support.The advantage of this will be the implants will not get affected as easily like a regular implant from infection because of the longer size and the thickness of the malar bone is resistant to infection.
This approach is used for severely resorbed upper jaws and is designed to facilitate immediate rehabilitation with ﬁxed replacement teeth. The zygoma implants are inserted in the back section from within the mouth, along with one or more additional regular implants in the front part of your jaw, or in the most sever of cases two zygomatic implants may be placed on each side, which is referred to as Quad Zygoma
When you use four zygoma implants ,placing two on each side it is called Quad zygoma .This is one of the best way to restore the teeth due to high strength and four implant support.
The Zygoma implant treatment needs special setup.Malligai Dental Hospital in Chennai is one of the best setup in chennai where we have all the facilities for a Zygoma implant placement.
