Common Q and A’s about Zygomatic Implants

What Should I Expect on the First Appointment?

Chatting is all that’s done in the first appointment. Yes, that’s right! There are no procedures on the first day. You’re only expected to sit and chat with your dentist about your dental history and the problem you want him to address.

Will the Treatment be Painful?

Not at all! Our dental patients can report that dental implant treatment is a painless procedure. You will be sedated the entire treatment. Likewise, before starting the treatment and during your first appointment, your dentist will orient you about the dos and don’ts before and after the procedure. Nevertheless, you may experience some bruising, soreness, or swelling during the first week from treatment; but, it is easily controlled with over-the-counter medications.

How Long will the Surgery Take?

After your first appointment, you will be scheduled for another appointment and will be advised to take a day off work. The zygomatic implant surgery will take about 6 hours which includes preparation, proper treatment, and relaxation.

How Long Will the Treatment Take?

On the day of your surgery, a temporary bridge will also be fitted, so there will be no day that you’ll have a missing tooth. The total treatment time will take about six to nine months, depending on your gum’s capacity to heal.
