Zygomatic implants are placed in the upper jaw when there is insufficient bone to support ordinary implants. They provide great support for bridgework where there has been a substantial amount of bone loss from the upper jaw, and ordinary implants could not be used on their own to support a bridge. Bone atrophy is a natural phenomenon that occurs after the extraction of teeth, and which is exacerbated over time due to wearing a denture.
Dental implant is also known as an intraosseous implant. A dental implant is a medical product that is surgically placed in the jawbone to support dental treatments.
