Pterygoid implants are intended for patients with significant shrinkage of the upper jaw, a condition known as atrophic maxilla. These individuals are unable to receive standard dental implants in the upper jaw because the bone cannot fuse properly around the implant root, resulting in implant failure.
The expert surgeons at Smart Arches are highly skilled at performing procedures involving pterygoid implants, without the need for sinus augmentation or bone grafting which requires longer healing periods and delays the process for dental implants. The final result provides a long-lasting, healthy smile, allowing you to chew, speak and eat as normal, with regular maintenance just as with natural teeth.
