The All-On-4 zygoma procedure can provide patients with permanent replacement teeth and is associated with numerous benefits. Today, we describe some of the most common benefits of the zygoma treatment in more detail. Based on this information, you can make a more informed decision where your own treatment is concerned. So, if you are considering All-On-4 or the zygoma treatment specifically, be sure to read the information below.

What Are the Benefits of the All-On-4 Zygoma?

Most patients will notice an immediate improvement in their quality of life. Patients who had dentures previously will experience the biggest benefits, since some of the problems they experienced with dentures in the past will be eliminated with dental implants.

Patients who have dentures often experience some problems eating and speaking; this often relates to the fear of their dentures falling out. The jawbone of the patient can change during this period too, since dentures are sitting on the gum and are therefore not stimulating the underlying jawbone, causing it to deteriorate.

With dental implants, patients do not have to worry about losing their teeth in public. The teeth are embedded into the dental implants, which are inserted in the jawbone. Therefore, dental implants will look and function much like normal teeth would.

Other benefits of dental implants are related to having good and healthy teeth. The jawbone where the dental implants are implemented will be stimulated by the presence of the implants, making it less likely the bone will deteriorate further. Dental implants provide countless benefits for everyday actions such as eating and speaking as well. Therefore, many patients prefer dental implants over regular dentures.

Does the All-On-4 Zygoma Treatment Provide Immediate Results?

Contrary to normal dental implant procedures, the results from All-On-4 zygoma are almost immediate. Even though patients have to wait a couple of days before the artificial teeth can be connected to the abutments of the dental implants, the end result comes much faster than with regular dental implants.

Regular dental implant treatments can take as much as six months and require quite a lengthy recovery time. Some patients must also obtain bone grafting before they can benefit from standard dental implants; this due to jawbone that has deteriorated over time due to the loss of several teeth. Fortunately, bone grafting can be eliminated with a procedure such as All-On-4 zygoma.

Are the Benefits of the All-On-4 Zygoma Procedure Different Than Those of the Regular All-On-4?

The benefits of All-On-4 zygoma are almost identical to those of regular All-On-4 dental implants; this because the principle of the treatment and its effects stay the same. The differences between All-On-4 and the zygoma treatment lays in the execution of the treatment and the types of dental implants used.

For All-On-4 zygoma, dentists must use longer dental implants; this ensures the dental implants can provide the sturdiness required to carry an entire arch of teeth. However, the benefits of the treatment remain the same, as the patient can still experience benefits such as an improved ability to eat and speak, as well as reducing the deterioration of the underlying jawbone.

Are There Any Side-Effects After the All-On-4 Zygoma Procedure?

The side effects of All-On-4 zygoma dental implants are similar to the side-effects patients can experience after a regular dental implant treatment. Patients can experience a weird feeling in the mouth and there might be some tenderness in the areas where dental implants were inserted.

In some cases, patients can experience some swelling immediately after the dental procedure. Swelling is a normal part of the healing process and occurs with most surgical treatments executed today. The swelling is usually contained in the gum tissue around the incision. In some cases, there might be some minor swelling visible on the face.

To reduce side-effects such as swelling, it can help to apply a cold pack on the treatment area. Adding a cold pack can reduce some of the swelling, but also counteract some of the pain if present.

There are also patients who experience some bruising after dental implant surgery. Once again, this is a normal side-effect associated with dental surgery. Bruising is usually limited to the jawline and the cheeks, although some patients only experience bruising on the inside of the mouth.

During the recovery process, it is still important to look for signs of complications, such as an infection. Even though rare with proper care and maintenance post-surgery, an infection could cause your dental implants to fail. Therefore, if you believe you may be experiencing symptoms of an infection, it is important to book an emergency appointment at your clinic.
