Tooth loss is a common occurrence resulting from disease, decay, or even traumatic accidents. If you ever lose your teeth, it is best to have them replaced sooner rather than later, which can prevent further loss of bone support. Dental implants are one way of achieving this.
At Valley OMS, we have met patients who have struggled with untreated tooth loss for decades. For many of them, bone loss is so significant that they fear they can never get implants.
Our practice is pleased to provide a number of treatments that can make even the unlikeliest dental implant candidates eligible for tooth replacement. We welcome you to learn more about zygomatic implants, which our practice proudly offers to patients throughout Texas.
What are Zygomatic Implants?
A traditional dental implant is a small titanium post, which is inserted into the jawbone to act as an artificial tooth root.
For those who have inadequate bone matter remaining, traditional implants may be impossible. Zygomatic implants provide an alternative. These implants are larger and require precise positioning, often extending through the sinuses. They are one of the best options available for those who have been told that they cannot get dental implants. These patients can often have their dignity and their dental functionality restored via zygomatic implant procedures.
Why Choose Valley OMS?
Not all oral surgeons offer this type of implant. In fact, most do not. That is because placing zygomatic implants requires a high level of skill and is accompanied by a higher level of risk. Offering this treatment requires a lot of additional training and preparation.
At Valley OMS, we are proud of the clinical acumen that allows us to provide zygomatic implants, and to truly offer full-scope oral health solutions to patients throughout Texas. With any additional questions about the procedure, we welcome you to contact us directly.

Generally speaking, the best candidates for zygomatic dental implants meet the following criteria:
They have lost teeth or anticipate having teeth extracted.
They do not have any untreated periodontal diseases.
They are in good physical health overall.
They do not have sufficient bone for traditional dental implants or for All-on-4.
