In patients with sufficient bone volume in the teeth-less upper jaw (maxilla), replacing complete teeth with dental implants can be achieved with predictable success. However in severely resorbed / worn-off maxilla, it’s a challenge. Several surgical procedures are available to treat this situation including grafting techniques like maxillary sinus grafts, block grafts etc., which would prolong the treatment by another 6 months, with additional bone grafting surgery too. There are also other alternatives including short implants, and tilted implant options like All-on-4 and Zygomatic Implants. But in extreme bone loss cases on the upper jaw, Zygomatic or Zygoma Implant is the best option, as short implants, alone or in conjunction with sinus floor elevation, less than 6 mm has significant failure rates.
Zygomatic Implant is embedded into the cheek bone otherwise called Zygoma bone, thereby eliminating the need for bone grafting and/or sinus lifts. A specially designed long dental implant (30mm- 60 mm length) is placed through the jaw bone (alveolar crest) and then into the zygomatic bone for anchorage. After the implants are fixed, a provisional prosthesis can be fixed immediately.
For the totally resorbed maxilla, when placement of anterior implants is not possible the concept can be expanded by inserting 2 additional zygomatic implants in a more anterior position (Quad zygoma). Zygomatic implants nowadays are usually immediately loaded with a fixed temporary bridge.
Final fixed prosthesis is delivered. Various options are:
The Zygomatic implant cost price in Hyderabad & Kochi, India depends on the protocol used. So, Zygomatic Implant procedure charges can range from an additional cost of INR 60,000 and above depending on whether its intra sinus / extra sinus Zygoma Implant, unilateral / bilateral Zygomatic implants or Quad Zygoma implants.

There are different protocols for the placement of zygomatic implants. The classical intra-sinus approach and the extra-sinus placement approach for severely resorbed maxilla. A thorough knowledge of the anatomy of face and related areas is necessary to reduce incidence of zygoma implant complications, achieve the best implant positions and emergence profile so as to achieve the best prosthetic rehabilitation. Therefore the placement of zygomatic implants requires adequate training and surgical experience. At FMS, the senior of Implantologists / Maxillofacial surgeons are trained internationally and have one and half decades of clinical experience in Zygoma implant surgeries.
Zygomatic implants are safe when proper diagnostic and surgical protocols are followed and most importantly when performed by an experienced dental Implant / Maxillofacial Surgeon. Complications can be usually avoided, however the reported complications are post-operative Sinusitis, Infra orbital nerve parasthesia , oro antral fistula etc, which can be dealt with.
Nobel Zygoma implants being the pioneers in tilted implant protocol is definitely the best choice. FMS also practices Bioline Zygoma implant system in specific cases. The Zygomatic Implant Cost Price varies between these brands.
