Zygomatic Implants

Making the Impossible Possible

If you’ve lost teeth in your upper jaw and were told you lack sufficient bone density for dental implants, the hopes of full smile rehabilitation may appear dashed. But there is another solution—zygomatic implants.

The zygomatic arch, or the cheekbone, is an area that can support dental implants. Using specially designed longer implants placed at an angle, it’s possible to access this bone to support several replacement teeth without needing bone grafting.

Hale Dental is home to one of the UK’s few zygomatic implant surgeons, Dr Richard Brookshaw. In his proficient hands, you could enjoy the benefits of a great-looking smile in no time.

The Science Behind
Zygomatic Implants

Just like traditional dental implants, zygomatic implants are titanium. This gives them immense strength and rigidity. Unlike standard implants, these are much longer as they’re designed to reach further into your facial structure to prove unparalleled support.

We’ll typically place four implants to maximise your new smile’s stability. Two standard implants are angled to support the front teeth, while two extra-long angled implants access the zygomatic bone on either side.

Once the implants are firmly positioned, we’ll create bespoke replacement teeth that match the natural colour, shape, and size of your teeth. The attention to detail of your new smile is second-to-none, and you’ll be amazed at how life-like your teeth look.

Due to the advanced techniques used, we can place zygomatic implants in a single day.

Who Are Zygomatic
Implants Best Suited To?

Zygomatic implants are the perfect solution for anyone that cannot have traditional or immediate-load dental implants in their upper jaw because of a lack of bone density. Bone loss can occur for various reasons. These include:

When you lose teeth, and they are not replaced

As a result of a dental infection

Through untreated periodontitis

Due to the natural ageing process

Before your treatment, we’ll assess your general and oral health and ensure zygomatic implants are right for you.

Zygomatic Implant Benefits

Aside from restoring your smile when you’ve experienced bone loss, zygomatic implants offer several other benefits.

Once in place, your new smile will look just like the real thing. We’re confident that you’ll feel great about your new teeth, and any lost self-esteem will return in no time.

Talking, laughing, and eating becomes much easier after a stable restoration. Anchoring your teeth through the dense cheekbone offers unparalleled durability, letting you chew and bite confidently. Unlike dentures, you don’t need to worry about your teeth becoming loose.


What to Expect From the Zygomatic Implant Procedure

Every zygomatic implant placement procedure starts with a consultation. We’ll assess your smile, and for you to ask any questions you have about the treatment.

Before placing your implants, we’ll ensure you’re perfectly comfortable. Anaesthetic ensures the whole experience is pain and discomfort-free.

We’ll place the implants in a single appointment. Once placed, we’ll provide a temporary arch of replacement teeth. Don’t worry; these will look and feel good and are only for use while your permanent bespoke teeth are crafted.

Our 5* Reviews

“Nothing but praises for the professionals at Hale Dental Clinic. My case was a bit complicated – had to get dental implants. The thought of it sent shivers down my spine. But the team, my goodness, they made the whole experience practically painless. From the first consultation to the aftercare, everything was just spot-on. They took their time to explain every step, answering all my questions, putting my fears to rest. The environment was calming, and the staff, incredibly welcoming. For anyone who’s been putting off getting their dental issues sorted due to fear, Hale Dental Clinic is the place to go.”
Rasla Mero
“Never previously used but was put in contact via my dentist due to a problematic implant that was unable to be fixed. Despite being the week before Christmas, they fitted me in at very short notice, everyone was extremely pleasant and professional, from Megan who called to arrange the appointment and welcomed me on site to Richard, the implantologist who explained everything clearly and succinctly. The icing on the cake was that he solved my problem despite the implant system being one he had never encountered previously. Delighted to recommend to any prospective clients. The surgery is very clean, professional and welcoming.”
Tony Wood
“I would highly recommend Hale Dental and Implant Clinic to everyone. They are not just professional but extremely kind, helpful and sensitive at what can be a very nervous time. From Hayley on reception who was so friendly and took time out to explain there were road works and it may delay my journey, to Donna, my care coordinator, who was so positive and reassuring to Jonny my dentist who is the most understanding and patient practitioner I have come across in all my time visiting the dentist. I would not go any where else. Thank you to all of you.”
Lisa Darlington
“Thank you to all the staff at Hale Dental Clinic who were kind and supportive throughout my treatment. I am really happy with the results and can’t stop smiling.”
M Walll
“My local Dentist recommended I consult Richard and the Team at Hale Dental & Implant Clinic regarding issues I was having with an old implant. Despite being officially closed over the Christmas / New Year period, Richard reviewed X-rays and photos of my teeth and arranged to see me at the earliest opportunity. I subsequently received treatment that was simply first class in all aspects and have no hesitation is recommending to others.”
Graeme Freear
“Being terrified of dental treatment I can’t say that I was excited at what was to come but, I can wholeheartedly say that Richard and his team made the whole experience calm, friendly, professional and pain free. I felt looked after and had no issues trusting their judgement. I’m very happy with the results and treatment received.”
Laura Duggan
“Once I had made my decision to have a large tooth from the back of my mouth removed (after speaking to 2 consultants at the practice to get all the options clear in my mind), my appointment was quickly made and even though I was quite nervous Richard was so kind and patient with me. It was quite a difficult extraction (but absolutely no pain) and I expected to be sore and swollen the next day – but to my surprise all was fine. I can highly recommend Hale Dental and especially Richard.”
Wendy Derbyshire
“One of the best dentists I have ever been to. From check-in the reception staff were super friendly and knowledgable. Then the dentist was amazing – he explained everything and did lots to make sure I felt comfortable. He even took photos and showed where and why I might require treatment. I had fillings put in and it was a good experience. Will be visiting here again next time I need any dental work”
Jay Sondhi
“I found Hale Dental to a very Professional practice and the premises are very clean. The practice has all the latest equipment and experience which meant that they were able to deal with all my dental needs. The staff were also both very efficient and polite. I was kept informed with every stage of my treatment plan and I found the treatment to be competitively priced.”
