Traditionally, if you did not have sufficient bone mass in your jaws, the only option was bone graft surgery to regenerate and enough bone mass to create a sufficient foundation for traditional dental implants. Now there are revolutionary dental implant techniques that eliminate the need for bone grafting altogether. Zygomatic Implants are a graftless dental implant technique where the implant is directly embedded in your cheekbones (referred to as Zygoma), where there is enough bone support for the implants.

People’s teeth can tell a lot about them. Dentists know if they grind their teeth while sleeping by looking for abfractions (loss of tooth structure located along the gum line) in the teeth. These are caused by Bruxism, an oral parafunctional activity caused by excessive teeth grinding or jaw clenching that occurs in a person’s sleep.
