Zygomatic Implants for patients with severe bone loss in the top jaw
Several patients may have been told that they ‘don’t have enough bone’ in their top jaws to have dental implants. Dr Trent Lincoln is pleased to be one of a few surgeons in Queensland to offer placement of zygomatic implants, an advanced technique particularly useful in those with severe bone loss in their upper jaw.
Bone loss or resorption occurs as a normal physiological process following extraction of teeth. In some patients, the bone loss is so severe, that conventional dental implants cannot be used due to insufficient bone to place them into.
