Pterygoid implant procedures are generally performed to patients who suffer from Atrophic maxilla which is a significant reduction in the size on the top jaw. This means that the upper jaw isn’t able to support conventional dental implants. Even if an implantologist were to insert an implant “root” into the upper jaw, the bone will probably not have the capacity of forming a fusion to the root and the implant may fail. Patients will always be able to get the use of dentures and dental partial dental implants are the most effective long-term solution to missing teeth. Instead of anchoring an implant horizontally in the jaw bone, as the case with traditional implants the Pterygoid Implants can be placed at a 45-degree angle to the medial plate. The result is a sparkling shining, new, beautiful smile despite previous struggles with bone loss!
Benefits of Pterygoid Implants
Replace missing teeth permanently: In some cases the Pterygoid Implants will permanently replace the missing teeth. In addition to being more confident, you’ll also be capable of eating food like you do with your natural teeth! In the case of many people, dental implants are life-changing.
Do not require sinus augmentation: Sinus augmentation can be necessary to increase the amount of bone within the sinus and the oral cavity. This procedure can add years to the process of implanting due to the fact that the patient needs to undergo sinus augmentation and wait for the wound to heal before the implant can be put in. In contrast, pterygoid implants do not require sinus augmentation, so patients can have a new smile faster.
Avoid bone grafting: Bone grafting was a common procedure for patients suffering from extreme loss of bone. Recovery from the graft of bone can last up to 1 calendar year until the jaw becomes fully prepared to accept implants. Because pterygoid implant bypasses the upper jaw completely and do not require the aid of a bone graft.
