A Second Chance at Dental Implants

Your Solution for Severe Bone Loss

Being told that the bone loss in your upper jaw no longer makes you a candidate for dental implants can be devastating. But there is hope!

Understanding Zygomatic Dental Implants

Unlike conventional dental implants, which are secured in the jawbone, zygomatic dental implants are surgically placed in the zygomatic (cheek) bones. With support coming from a strong, stable facial bone, these dental implants do not require any alterations of the jawbone to support a denture or fixed bridge of teeth. Zygomatic implants are one of the most complex surgeries in implant dentistry and few implant dentists are trained in this procedure. Dr. Biaggi routinely places both zygomatic and pterygoid dental implants in San Antonio, TX, and has decades of experience and clinical results to back his treatments. By providing pterygoid and zygomatic implants, our team at Preferred Dental Center can offer you the following benefits:

Expect a Less Invasive Surgery

Zygomatic dental implants may sound more invasive than conventional treatments, but they can be placed in one surgical procedure without any additional bone grafting while you are comfortably receiving custom sedation treatment. During your procedure, Dr. Biaggi will use a tailored surgical guide to place your implants in strategic positions in your cheekbones to ensure your sinuses are unharmed. This procedure will also involve placing additional conventional dental implants where the bone in your jaw is most dense to properly support new teeth. Because no bone grafting is necessary for this treatment, we can often complete your treatment process faster and provide you with a functional, beautiful new smile more quickly than with conventional treatment—often the same day as your surgery. Even if you have extensive bone loss and have been told your case is hopeless, our team at Preferred Dental Center can help you experience a better quality of life immediately and permanently with zygomatic dental implants.
