Am I a Candidate for Zygomatic/Cheek Bone Implants?

Have you been told you’re not a candidate for dental implants because you lack adequate bone in your upper jaw? If so, now is the time to get a second opinion from the Cohen Centre in Winnipeg.

What are Zygomatic Implants?

Dr. Mark Cohen offers an innovative new therapy called zygomatic implants. This treatment offers a unique alternative that patients who have been told that they are not candidates for dental implants. The Zygomatic implant, or cheek bone implant, uses the cheekbone zygoma bone, to anchor the longer zygoma implants.

Implants without a bone graft

From a patient perspective, while a longer implant may seem daunting, this novel approach allows an oral and maxillofacial surgeon to place an implant without the need of a bone graft. Patients often find this to be a big relief as the bone grafting procedure requires multiple appointments, and additional healing time.

With zygomatic implants, Dr. Mark Cohen can place a bridge onto the implants immediately, making it possible for you to walk out of surgery with a brand-new smile.

  • A fixed row of teeth within 3 days rather than 6 months
  • Significantly less discomfort for patient
  • No need him or bone grafting
  • Use your new implants immediately, biting and chewing is possible shortly after your surgery.
