Zygoma Implants

Zygoma implants and all-on-4 immediate function implants cases at BIDC are done only by the top dental implantologists and oral surgeons in the country.  Our team of dental implant specialists are highly qualified accredited from Europe and USA.

Zygomatic implants are a suited option for full arch missing teeth reconstruction with severe posterior bone loss on the upper jaw. A new set of teeth is placed within 72 hours from dental implant post placement. Traditionally, dental implants will require enough height and width of bone in the upper jaws for placement. In upper jaws, if there is minimal bone, surgical options such as sinus-lift and bone grafting would be done. Zygoma implants places implants into cheek bones at an approximate 45-degree angle emerging at the dental ridge. This often prevents the need for more intensive bone graft surgery.
