What are pterygoid implants?

Pterygoid implants are long telescopic implants placed on the posterior(back) region of the maxillary jaw, SDC is one of the Best Pterygoid Implant Placement Clinic In Chennai, India. These implants are used for severe atrophic maxilla bone with minimal surgical work and maximum functional teeth.

Usually, single molar teeth are enough to have a good oral function but when it comes to aesthetics, a smile is more important. An increased number of teeth may be required to have a good aesthetic smile for patients with maximum buccal corridor show. This implant gives perfect support to the most posterior teeth if the number of teeth is increased.
