Zygomatic Implants, a durable long-term solution with few complications

Success Rate of Zygomatic Implants?

Overview of zygomatic implants

Before presenting the success rate of zygomatic implants, let’s quickly review this treatment option. Zygomatic implants are a safe solution for severe bone loss. Zygomatic implants complications are uncommon. They serve as several support points for a fixed set of teeth. More importantly, zygomatic implants represent the most advanced solution for the patients lacking bone to place regular dental implants. After a precise diagnostic, the surgical procedure and delivery of the fixed set of teeth take place in 24 h. This treatment option allows recovering both function and aesthetics quickly. 

Success Rate of Zygomatic Implants

Over the years, the scientific community has reported a high success rate of zygomatic implants. Currrently, very few zygomatic implants complications are observed. More than that, for the last ten years now, placing zygomatic implants has become safer and more predictable than the use of bone grafts. At the ZAGA Centers, we count with specialists that study the grade of success of an implant, taking into consideration a significant number of cases and strict criteria regarding the health and the comfort of the patient.

For the ZAGA Centers, the success of zygomatic implant treatments is synonymous with the patient’s quality of life. Indeed, the most common complaint of patients requiring zygomatic implants is a progressive loss of quality of life, related to the use of a removable denture. Recovering a fixed set of teeth is the primary outcome of the zygomatic implants treatment. Thus, patients recover a high quality of life in only 24 h.

Your treatment plan will include a minimum of one or two yearly follow-up appointments. The dental professionals will check on you, your satisfaction, quality of life, and clean the fixed set of teeth. They will check for the healthy gum tissue, for instance. These yearly follow-up visits ensure prevention and, if any, the early treatment of complications.

Complications

As in any surgical procedure, there is a small risk of complications. ZAGA Centers receive training and are knowledgeable in preventing complications. The most common complications are sinusitis and gum recession. The risk of them is minimum because of the advanced ZAGA technique and the design of the zygomatic implants that adapt to the patient anatomy. Above all, professionals aim at preventing complications instead of treating them. The preventive approach used by the ZAGA Centers is essential to the long-term success of each patient’s treatment and satisfaction. Finally, ZAGA Centers also treat complications from dental centers referring to complex problems.

Overview of zygomatic implant treatments

Above all, zygomatic implants are a solution for patients suffering from severe bone loss, willing to have fixed teeth again. Up to four long implants anchor into the cheekbone to support a fixed set of teeth. The objective of the treatment is the quality of life of each patient. The treatment plan adapts to each patient’s dental history and personal goals. Thus it is essential to consider potential zygomatic implant complications that could affect the outcome of the procedure. 

Zygomatic implant potential complications

As with all surgeries, there is always potential for complications. The ZAGA Concept aims at preventing, not treating zygomatic implant complications. Additionally, the ZAGA Centers are referral centers for complications from other dental offices. The most commonly observed complications are the retraction of the gum tissue and chronic sinusitis. The objective of the treatment with zygomatic implants is to recover the quality of life that each patient lost over time due to teeth and bone loss. Zygomatic implant complications lower the daily quality of life of the patient. The ZAGA Centers have experience in preventing them.

Solutions

Above all, the ZAGA Concept helps prevent zygomatic implant complications that arise from using other surgical techniques. Accordingly, our success rate proves this. Regarding the final quality of life, the dental prosthesis you will receive occupies a natural space in the mouth. Its dimensions are very similar to those of original teeth, which helps improve aesthetics, maintenance, and hygiene. Furthermore, each ZAGA Center follows up once or twice annually with each patient for hygiene and quality of life evaluation. Can you eat and masticate well? Are you happy with your smile? Did pain fade away? These questions are essential for the long-term success of the treatment. Finally, the ZAGA Centers will help you the best they can if you are currently suffering from zygomatic implant complications.

Zygomatic implant failure: is it possible?

How rare is it?

In a nutshell, the success rate of zygomatic implant treatments is high. Overall, it has increased over the past 20 years and overcome a few years back the treatments using bone grafts. Zygomatic implant failure is rare. Each zygomatic implant is unique because each patient’s dental history is unique. Zygomatic implant treatments represent the last and only option for patients suffering from severe bone loss. For instance, this can be due to implant loss or the use of a removable denture for a long time.

The zygomatic implant treatment involves the placement of one or up to 4 implants in the cheekbone to support fixed teeth. As with any surgical procedure, there is always a risk for complications. Therefore, preventing these complications is an objective of the ZAGA Centers. They have experience and continuously educate themselves as a network to provide the safest treatments possible. As experts, they also support local dental offices by treating their complications.

What solutions for zygomatic implant failure?

There are few options to deal with the unsuccessful placement of a zygomatic implant. Patients who lost their teeth and currently suffer from severe bone loss have a single opportunity to recover fixed teeth. Hence, the process has to be performed right on the first try. This is why it is best to rely on a highly specialized center for the restoration of extreme bone loss with zygomatic implants. ZAGA Center staff are highly trained and prepared for a variety of challenges.

A thorough diagnostic, a personalized treatment plan, and an experienced team of experts are necessary ingredients for successful treatment. The ZAGA Centers are multidisciplinary experts in the field of dentistry. They provide a solution for your dental problem covering all its aspects: quality of life, pain, social life, aesthetics. Consequently, they will recommend using zygomatic implants only if no other treatment option is possible. The treatments aim at being minimally-invasive and conservative.
