What is a Pterygoid Implant?
Pterygoid Implant is an implant that is anchored in the pterygoid region of the jaw bone. This pterygoid region is situated just behind the maxillary sinus in the skull.
Why Pterygoid Implant is required?
Pterygoid implant is recommended in the cases where the bone density is very less to hold traditional implants and prosthetics. Due to lack of sufficient bone mass in the maxillary region (front part of the jaw) traditional implants do not get a strong support and may fail in the long run. As Pterygoid implants are typically wider & longer than the conventional implants, they provide a strong, stable and long lasting support to the implant prosthesis. Pterygoid implants are angled differently to accommodate the unique anatomy of the pterygoid region.
Pterygoid Implant Process
Pterygoid implants, which are made of bio compatible material, are required to be angled in a very precise manner to accommodate the unique anatomy of the pterygoid region. This is a very complex procedure which needs a lot of accuracy & care. This procedure can be done only by a professional dentist who has gone through a specialised training and who has mastered the expertise and precise surgical techniques.
