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.

What Patients Say

Secure and confident

Pauline was fed up with the hassle of wearing dentures, but dentists said her jaw was too weakened to accept implants. Zygomatic implants offered a ray of hope, securing a row of 14 upper teeth permanently in place, and Pauline couldn’t be more pleased with the result!

It’s totally worth it!

After an accident, poor repair work with bridges left Phil facing difficulties with speech and low on confidence. So how does he rate implants from the Hale Dental team? He says they’re better than the real thing!

Just go for it!

Guy discovered Hale Dental following a recommendation from his dentist. He says implants from Hale Dental have restored his confidence and put a spring back in his step. And the procedure turned out to be much more comfortable than expected.

Can’t help but smile!

Years of dental neglect left Adrienne’s teeth in a poor state, but she didn’t like the idea of living with dentures. She says implants from Hale Dental were worth every penny—and meeting Dr Richard Brookshaw definitely made an impression!

It’s changed my life!

M Walll
“Absolutely outstanding service and experience. My daughter’s teeth look amazing. The personal care and attention she received during her Invisalign treatment was fabulous. Great options for appointments and could not be happier. My other daughter went to Turret and our experience was polar opposite. Hale dental were great and took her treatment over too for a small cost to correct the outcome we were left with from Turret. Couldn’t recommend Hale Dental more highly.”
Andrea Sennett
“I am really impressed with the treatment I had here. I was completely pain free during my implants procedure. The staff are all very professional and caring. I was contacted by Richard and Ed over the following couple of days to ask if everything was ok. Couldn’t speak highly enough of all the staff.”
Linda Prytherch
“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.

“Great service overall, pre-surgery appointments, the surgery day itself and post-surgery care. Very well handled by Richard, Jonny and team.”
Yannis Nicolaidis
“Over the course of the previous 3 months, I’ve been undergoing cosmetic treatment at Hale Dental Clinic. I must say it has been the most pleasant time; watching as my uneven, slightly yellowed teeth have transformed in to an unrecognisable, unbowed, white smile that I never thought I’d have. The treatment was performed by the delightful Sophie Parker. Sophie is a master of the field, who has not only provided me with stellar results, but also with a genuinely friendly, amazing, personal service. Thank you so much again Sophie and Hale Dental clinic. If and when I require further treatment, you are the only place on my list.”
