Below is everything you may need to know about Pterygoid implants!
The primary objective of dental implants is to permanently replace missing teeth and restore smiles. They have numerous advantages including enhanced appearance, boosted self-esteem, easier ability to eat, improved speech, better oral health, and much more! Although success rates are almost %100, not everyone is a good candidate for regular dental implants. This is when your dentist may suggest an almost equally effective, advanced alternative such as pterygoid implants.
Tuberosity implants or pterygomaxillary implants, commonly referred to as simply pterygoid implants are an amazing option for patients who have more complex implant needs. This type is specifically good for those with upper jawbone loss usually caused by the atrophic maxilla. Regular dental implants don’t work for patients who have severe jawbone shrinkage. This is why dental advancements such as the pterygoid implant are so beneficial! Before pterygoid implant surgery, your implant specialist will run a series of a screening test to make sure you are a good candidate.
Benefits of pterygoid implants include:
• Permanent solution to missing teeth
• Perfect option for patients who suffer from the atrophic maxilla
• Incredibly high success rate of over %90
• No need for invasive bone grafting
• Easy aftercare
• Quicker recovery time, within only three short days you can begin to eat and chew
• Prevents the need for painful and invasive sinus augmentation procedures
• Shorter treatment time and much fewer visits to the dentist are required which may help you save both time and further dental expenses
• Less invasive than other treatment options
• Full teeth function afterward
• Very minimal complications
• Improved, radiant, and restored smile!
Unlike regular dental implants that are placed directly into the jaw, pterygoid implants are placed in the tuberosity region of the face. The pterygoid implant is anchored into the medial pterygoid plate at a 45-degree angle. Because the implant isn’t rooted into the jaw, the pterygoid implant can be used on any patient who has notable jaw bone loss and/or shrinkage.
Pterygoid implants are a permanent solution to missing teeth and therefore can last a lifetime. Your dental implant specialist may ask you to come in once every few years to make sure everything is working up to standard. If you have a crown placed on your dental implants, these will need to be replaced once every 10 to 15 years depending on how much they have been damaged over the years.
