When a tooth is lost, the surrounding bone will quickly begin to shift and move around the remaining teeth. When multiple teeth are lost, the effects are even more extreme. Unfortunately, most dentists are not able to offer a permanent solution to patients who have lost too much bone to effectively place traditional dental implants and their patients have to make do with dentures. Fortunately, Dr. Gregory Bennett and his team of experts are experts in the placement of zygomatic dental implants-the only permanent solution for patients experiencing advanced bone loss.
Dr. Bennett is experienced when it comes to dental surgeries, with extensive knowledge and expertise to handle complex dental cases with predictable results. Our dentists are some of only a few in the country who routinely place zygomatic dental implants in Arvada, CO as part of their full arch treatments. With this specialized solution offered at our practice, we can help patients who previously were told they didn’t qualify for dental implants with a new smile and life!
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 alterations of the jawbone, such as bone grafting, to support a bridge of fixed teeth. Zygomatic implants are one of the most complex surgeries in implant dentistry and only a few dentists are trained in this procedure. Our dentists place zygomatic dental implants in Arvada, CO on a routine basis and have years of experience and clinical results to back their treatments.
Zygomatic dental implants may seem like a more complex treatment option, but they offer a one-time surgical procedure that does not require additional bone grafting while you are under anesthesia. Before your appointment, our dentist will use 3D cone-beam CT scans to digitally plan your treatment. During the procedure, your implants will be strategically placed in your bone to ensure maximum stability. We may also place conventional dental implants in areas of your jaw where the bone is most dense. Because there is no need for bone grafting, this treatment can often be completed faster than traditional methods, resulting in a functional and aesthetically pleasing new smile sooner. Our team at Arvada Dental Center is committed to providing you with a better quality of life through our zygomatic dental implants.
