The difference between cheek implants (or cheek implants) and traditional dental implants is that they are anchored to the cheekbone (cheek bone) rather than the maxilla (upper jaw). They can be used when the quality or quantity of the jaw is not sufficient to place conventional dental implants.

How it is done?

For patients with severe atrophy of the upper jaw, it is quite difficult to implant dental implants in this area. The loss of the maxillary posterior teeth leads to rapid bone loss and sinus cavity expansion, which creates another obstacle. In addition, a complete transplant can extend the treatment time. However, the innovation of zygomatic implants can be used as an alternative treatment to traditional techniques.
