Zygomatic Implants

Dental Implants Reconsidered

Dental implants are the gold standard for restoring missing or damaged teeth. But when your jaw has deteriorated, this innovative and life-changing procedure is suddenly off the cards. Your hopes for a restored smile may seem dashed.

You need sufficient bone density to provide complete support for your new teeth. Hearing the bad news that your jaw can’t take implants is understandably upsetting. But at SmileHQ, this isn’t the end of the road.

While bone graft and sinus lift procedures are still an option, zygomatic implants can achieve what other treatments can’t.

Zygomatic implants support replacement teeth on your upper arch. Dr Vishal Patel and our expert team can replace several teeth or the entire row using this precision technique.


Advanced Smile Restoration

Dental implants are small titanium screws that use your jawbone to support new teeth. If you’ve lost bone density through resorption, we can’t place implants because they’ll lack stability.

Zygomatic implants are much longer than standard implants. This type of implant is designed to access the dense zygomatic (cheek) bone for maximum support. We’ll place these implants at an angle to reach more of the bone.

We’ll use a combination of conventional and zygomatic implants to provide optimal support across the length of your smile. Once anchored into position, your implants support bespoke and natural-looking replacement teeth.


We can use zygomatic implants if you:

Have lost multiple teeth in your upper arch
Have multiple failing teeth in your upper arch
Have lost bone mass in your upper jaw
Have previously had dentures but would like increased stability

Zygomatic Implant Benefits

Reach Further

Zygomatic implants use the broader cheekbone instead of the jaw. By reaching toward the cheeks at an angle, there’s less need to worry about a thin or weak jawbone. Your new smile will get the support needed for eating, speaking, laughing, and smiling.

Skip the Graft

Depleted jaw bone mass usually means you’d need a graft or sinus lift before we can place dental implants. Although bone grafts are highly-effective, it can take longer to create your new smile. Because zygomatic implants use other facial bones for support, they are less reliant on the jaw, so it’s not necessary to have a bone graft.

Smile Confidently

When we place zygomatic implants, we’ll also produce custom-made replacement teeth that look perfect. We’ll match the colour, shape, texture, and size of your teeth. You’ll love how your new smile looks, leaving you feeling good about your appearance.

Regain Your Bite

You suddenly need to consider every meal when you lose teeth. Anything that needs lots of chewing is off the menu. With zygomatic implants, you can swap the mashed potato for your favourite meals and bite and chew confidently again.

Lifelong Foundations

Zygomatic implants are made from titanium, a strong, biocompatible material that doesn’t corrode or degrade. If you look after your new teeth, your implants will last for life.

The Zygomatic Implant Process

Before any procedure, we’ll invite you for a consultation with Dr Vishal Patel and the SmileHQ implant team. We’ll assess your smile and discuss your treatment options during this appointment. After answering your questions, we’ll start planning your surgery if you want to proceed with zygomatic implants.

On the day of your procedure, we’ll place four to six implants, including two longer rods stretching to your cheek—all administered under gentle sedation so you won’t feel a thing.

Next, we’ll place temporary replacement teeth. Although these are just a stop-gap, you’ll be surprised at their quality.

After your final teeth are ready, we’ll invite you back to the clinic to place them.

Absolutely fantastic treatment from start to finish. My daughter was extremely anxious about having root canal treatment, but says she could barely feel anything. Rose (Endodontist) has a very professional and calming manner. The whole experience was the best experience my daughter has had at a dental practice. Belle (Nurse) was also so kind and caring, helping to completely put my daughter at ease. I can’t recommend Smile HQ and its staff enough. Also ladies on reception go above and beyond to Welcome you and put you at ease. Special mention to Hannah, for helping us get the quickest correct type of appointment, thoroughly answering all our questions. Seamless experience 😊

Fantastic customer experience from start to finish. It’s a truly state of the art facility, stylish and modern. You feel very relaxed the moment you walk in. I saw Dr Sasha and his Nurse Charlotte who were both excellent and very professional. Certainly a dental practice where I feel in safe hands and will continue to visit for years to come.

By far one of the best dental experiences I’ve ever had! I’ve been looking for a good dentist for a long time and always leave disappointed. The moment I walked into Smile HQ, I felt like I stepped into a Harley Street clinic – so clean and kind service. Dr Sasha took his time to explain and make sure I was very comfortable. The best dentist I’ve ever met who was actually so knowledgeable. Charlotte was brilliant and always had a smile on her face! 100% recommend this place!
