      Zygomatic Implants

      For people who cannot receive regular implants due to maxillary bone loss.

      Missing teeth can significantly impact your ability to eat, speak, and smile confidently. For patients who cannot receive regular implants due to maxillary bone loss, zygomatic implants offer a solution, serving as a last resort to avoid the use of bone grafts, which are more aggressive and less predictable.

      When your ZZC surgeon uses the ZAGA method to place your zygomatic implants, you will benefit from having fixed teeth in just one day that are more aesthetic and similar in appearance to your original teeth. In addition to providing a better long-term prognosis, this procedure is less invasive, is specifically designed to adjust to your personal anatomical characteristics. This method also makes patients less likely to encounter the complications of other zygomatic implants.

      What is the ZAGA method for zygomatic implants?

      The placement of zygomatic implants with the ZAGA method involves a minimally invasive osteotomy, following an individualized route for each patient. This often passes through part of the maxillary sinus until it is anchored in the zygomatic (malar) bone.

      Zygomatic implants are used to anchor fixed teeth to atrophic maxillary bones, bypassing the need for, and potential complications associated with, bone grafts in the maxillary sinus, nose, or alveolar ridge. Therefore, they are the preferred option for restoring the missing teeth of people who cannot receive regular implants due to severe bone loss in the upper jaw.

      How long does it take to complete the treatment?

      After your zygomatic implants are placed, and generally within 24 hours of the procedure, you will receive a fixed denture called an “immediate prosthesis” or “fixed prosthesis”.

      The final prosthesis is created 7 days later, during which time a soft diet is recommended.

      Throughout this period, it is normal for the inflammation in the gums to reduce; this creates gaps between the prosthesis and the gums that get bigger over time. The final prosthesis will fill these gaps and correct other technical and aesthetic aspects.

      Frequently Asked Questions

      ZAGA is more than just a method; it is a philosophy of how we work with patient well-being as one of its core principles. Instead of forcing the patient’s anatomy to adapt to our tools and processes, we adapt our tools and processes to the patient’s anatomy.

      The ZAGA philosophy aims to achieve long-term success in treating severe maxillary atrophy. In addition to maximizing success, the ZAGA philosophy seeks to prevent complications instead of treating them.

      SameDay Dental Implants Clinic is an expert in zygomatic implants in Dubai, where patients with severe bone loss can receive implant-supported fixed teeth. We are the first and only ZAGA Center in the UAE and entire GCC.

      Treating tooth loss with fixed prostheses anchored on zygomatic implants using the innovative ZAGA technique achieves a remarkable success rate of 96.1%.

      In addition to an intraoral examination, a panoramic X-ray is generally needed as well as an X-ray computed tomography, such as a CBCT. These tests do not eliminate the need for other medical tests.

      There are few options to deal with the unsuccessful placement of a zygomatic implant. It is our firm belief that in the great majority of cases, patients who lose their teeth and have severe atrophy in their maxilla have only ONE opportunity to treat this tooth loss with fixed teeth, so the process has to be performed right on the first try. This is why it is best to rely on a ZAGA Center that is highly specialized in the restoration of extreme maxillary atrophy with zygomatic implants.

      There are differences among the zygomatic implants that are currently available on the market. It is worth pointing out that, in addition to the surgical procedure, the design and composition of the implant to be used is also important in order to maximize the long-term success of the treatment. For this reason, results and potential complications vary widely depending on the materials and methodology used.

      The ZAGA platform not only advocates for adapting the technique to each individual patient, but for adapting the implant’s design to the patient. Some of the benefits to ZAGA zygomatic implants are that their dimensions can adapt to the very complex cases of people who have severe atrophy, such as with female patients, and that placing these implants requires a less invasive procedure. ZAGA Centers like SameDay Dental Clinic give preferential access to implant procedures and other ZAGA designs.

      As with all surgeries, there is always a potential for complications, so you should ask about your specific case in order to be informed of these in detail. Generally, however, the ZAGA method prevents oro-antral communication-related complications, which are common with other methods. Compared to traditional zygomatic implant techniques, the dental prosthesis used in the ZAGA method takes up a natural space in the mouth, as its dimensions are very similar to those of original teeth, which helps improve aesthetic aspects, maintenance and hygiene.

      Yes, we do. As the only ZAGA Center in the UAE and the GCC, we receive patients fromthe Middle East and all over the world seeking this specialized treatment.
