Subperiosteal Implants:

A subperiosteal implant is to stabilize and/or support a loose denture. The type of implant used depends on the amount of bone loss. The result is a comfortable, stable, and great functioning denture.

A subperiosteal implant is one style of implant used to stabilize a lower denture.

The lattice, metal framework fits on top of the jawbone and under the gum tissue. There are usually 4 parts that protrude through the gum tissue from the metal framework and totally support the denture. 

Using the new CT scan technology, this procedure can be performed in a relatively short period of time and the patient can begin chewing immediately after the implant is placed. The success rate is extremely high and the patient satisfaction is remarkable.

Step 1:

A mask is placed onto the patient to steady the head. A CT Scan of the jaw follows.

Step 2:

From the CT Scan, a resin duplicate model of the jaw is made in the lab.

Step 3:

After completion of the resin duplicate, an implant is fabricated to fit the model.

Step 4:

Simulation of the implant on the model.

Step 5:

The implant is placed (as shown above) followed by dentures the same day.
