Dr. Michael Webster here, Implant Dentist and Owner at Kelowna Dental Centre! If you’re looking to regain your smile’s brilliance, functionality, and the confidence that comes with it, you’ve come to the right place. Let’s explore Pterygoid Implants: the procedure, costs and financing options, plus the transformative before and after results. 

Advancements in dental implantology have introduced a groundbreaking technique called pterygoid implants. This approach is specifically designed for patients who have significant bone loss in the back of their upper jaw, where traditional implants may not work. By utilizing a unique part of the jawbone called the pterygoid region, we can now provide a stable and functional alternative for tooth replacement.

What Are Pterygoid Dental Implants?

Pterygoid implants are a special type of dental implant used when there is not enough strong bone in the back of the upper jaw to support traditional implants. These implants take advantage of a dense and sturdy part of the jawbone called the pterygoid region, which provides a solid base for the implant.

The pterygoid region is located deep within the skull and consists of two parts called the medial and lateral pterygoid plates. These plates have dense bone that can be used to anchor the implants. 

What Are the Benefits of Pterygoid Implants?  

By using the dense bone in the pterygoid region, the need for extensive bone grafting or sinus lift procedures can be minimized, which reduces treatment time and complexity.

Pterygoid implants offer improved stability and support for the replacement teeth. The back of the upper jaw is a challenging area for conventional implants due to limited bone volume and density. Pterygoid implants overcome these challenges by providing secure anchorage and distributing the force of biting more effectively. This results in better chewing ability and overall functionality of your teeth! 

What Should I Expect From the Implant Procedure?

Before the surgery, we will thoroughly examine your oral and radiographic records to assess the quality and quantity of the bone and consider other important factors.

During the surgery, we make an incision in the back of the upper jaw to access the pterygoid region. Then, using a special drilling technique, we create a space in the pterygoid bone to insert the implant. These implants are longer and wider than traditional ones to ensure a secure fit and stability.
