Full Arch Questions to ask Your Dentist

How Zygomatic Dental Implants Can Give Options For Denied Implant Patients!

Kim Caldwell

Hi, I'm here today with Dr. Andrew Mueller, an oral surgeon from the Marquis Dental Implant Center. Our topic today is to talk about full arch dental implants. So there's different sizes, types, brands of implants that do different things, tell me about the zygomatic.

Dr. Andrew Mueller

Yeah. So for for these patients often when they've been told they don't have enough bone, They've lost a lot of the alveolar bone usually in the upper jaw. And so with maybe the teeth in a day or the all on four can't be done in the traditional way. But a zygomatic implant is a great example of a longer implant that we can place an anchor in the cheekbone and now we can with relative ease offer a solution for these patients.

Another way to solve a problem for someone who's been told there's no hope for you, you can place these implants and give them that full Arch that will really help them out. The zygomatic implants isn't something that you hear a lot about so is that something that only a specialist can place or a specialist is trying to do?

Dr. Andrew Mueller

Pretty much exclusively would be done by an oral maxillofacial surgeon and even among Surgeons only a very small percentage, well less than 5% of the of the oral surgeons out there place zygomatic implants. So it's a great solution that we've had for a number of years. It's a great way to help these patients, but there's just not a lot of knowledge out there about it, unfortunately and that's that's why these patients being told they don't have enough bone.

Kim Caldwell

But it does definitely takes the specialized training of an oral surgeon to be able to know all the muscles, bones, and all that within the face and and you have the advantage that the Marquis Center of having a team of people who's trained that way.

Dr. Andrew Mueller

That's true.

Kim Caldwell

So someone's been told they don't have enough bone. That's actually not really a problem. Not enough bone is not really a problem.
