Pterygoid and zygomatic implants
Pterygoid implants are special types of dental implants that are intended for installation in the lateral regions of the upper jaw within the pterygoid space, in conditions where there is not enough bone tissue. They are significantly longer than standard implants. Except in the upper jaw, they are attached to the bones of the face and skull.
They require precise surgical technique during installation and have a number of special features in the production of prosthetic restorations on them. It is an intervention that is extremely favorable for the patient, because it includes a drastic reduction of surgical time and postoperative consequences (pain, swelling and hematomas), it is definitely less invasive than old bone grafts or sinus lifts..
