What can be done for patients who require implant treatment who have bone loss?

The full arch immediate load protocol enables us to angel the back implants into an area of the bone in the upper jaw where you are more likely to have bone availability.


However, in some extreme cases, an implant system known as zygomatic implants can be used, which pass through the jawbone and lock into the zygoma bone, which is the bone near your cheek so, they can be used in patients with extreme bone loss who still want a fixed dental restoration.
