Zygomatic Dental Implants - Lexington, KY

Breaking Boundaries and Building Smiles

No Bone, No Problem

Has a previous dentist informed you that your jawbone’s deterioration is hindering the option of dental implants? If so, you might have encountered several repercussions stemming from this condition. The challenges you may face are the lack of support for your remaining teeth and potential changes in your facial structure. 

At Bluegrass Dentistry, under the guidance of Dr. Seth Chambers, we firmly believe that everyone should have the opportunity to experience the benefits of full mouth dental implants in Lexington, KY.

We take pride in offering zygomatic dental implant surgery as an innovative alternative to traditional implants. This specialized procedure, undertaken by only a select group of dentists nationwide, has been made accessible through our advanced training and technology. 

Rest assured, you’re in capable hands as we strive to provide a solution that transforms your oral health and quality of life.

What Are Zygomatic Implants?

Unlike conventional dental implants, which usually rely on four to six posts in the jawbone, zygomatic implants present an advanced alternative, especially beneficial for those grappling with pronounced bone loss, primarily in the upper jaw.

This intricate approach entails securing the implant posts to the zygomatic bones in the cheek, diverging from the customary jawbone attachment. Leveraging the formidable resilience of the zygomatic bone, we extend the possibility of full mouth dental implants, even to individuals deemed unsuitable candidates for conventional implant techniques.

Our Zygomatic Dental Implant Process

Despite their perceived complexity, zygomatic dental implants typically involve just one surgical session. Their distinct advantage lies in often negating the necessity for supplementary bone grafting, allowing us to streamline the process and unveil a functional, exquisite new smile faster than conventional approaches. 

At Bluegrass Dentistry, the journey commences with an oral assessment and cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) scans. These scans thoroughly evaluate your bone structure, nerves, and sinus cavities, enabling meticulous planning for precise implant positioning. 

We offer sedation dentistry to ensure comfort and alleviate surgical apprehensions.

Dental implants are strategically situated in predetermined locations during the procedure to ensure optimal stability and safeguard neighboring structures. Before you leave, we’ll provide a natural-looking temporary restoration so you can immediately enjoy your brand-new smile’s benefits! 

Over 3-6 months, your implants will fuse to your zygomatic bone through osseointegration. Once healed, you’ll receive a permanent restoration and successful integration of implants with your underlying bone. 

Like many other patients who have chosen zygomatic implants in Lexington, KY, you’ll relish remarkable functional and aesthetic advantages for years, potentially even a lifetime!

Multiple Options for One Complete Smile

Transnasal Dental Implants

Transnasal dental implants are a cutting-edge dental solution that involves the placement of dental implants through the nasal cavity. This innovative technique offers a minimally invasive alternative if you have limited bone structure in the upper jaw, eliminating the need for traditional surgery through the gums. By accessing the nasal passage, transnasal dental implants provide a unique approach to anchor dental restorations, securely offering improved stability and functionality.

Pterygoid Implants

Pterygoid implants are specialized dental implants designed to address complex cases of tooth loss and limited bone density in the posterior upper jaw. Unlike traditional implants that rely solely on the jawbone for support, pterygoid implants anchor into the pterygoid bone, a dense area near the back of the mouth. This innovative technique enables stable and secure implant placement, offering a viable solution if you may not be a suitable candidate for conventional implant methods.

Trans-Sinus Implants

Trans-sinus implants are advanced dental implants specifically designed to address tooth loss in the posterior upper jaw, where bone density may be insufficient. This technique involves placing implants through the maxillary sinus, creating a secure foundation for dental restorations. By utilizing the sinus area for implant placement, trans-sinus implants offer a unique solution that often eliminates the need for additional bone grafting procedures, allowing patients to enjoy restored oral function and aesthetics.
