10 key points in the subperiosteal implant made from titanium – new generation
- Goes around the jawbone crest and not into it, therefore the bone is not pierced and does keep its own integrity
- Is anchored to the external cortical bone that is more solid than the internal medullary bone.
- Comes from a titanium-melting process on to the stereolithographic model of the bone as by the CAT.
- Is the only implant to be tested on to the model prior to its application in the mouth so as to assess its stability.
- Being applied astride the jawbone crest, it is able to withstand force or stress without being dislodged or damaged.
- The two bars of the implant opposite to each other behave the same way as the roots of molars wide apart.
- A test on to the model obtained prior to its application inside the mouth makes surgery simple and fast as the doctor has already tested the positioning on to the model.
- Post op pain – if there is any – is quite slight.
- Is made usable as soon as it is applied to.
- Over the last 50 years thousands of these implants were put in place by dental teams all over the world relying on high-tech equipment specially dedicated to titanium melting process.
The jawbone crests of an edentulous mouth feature different sizes: high, wide, low and thin. The cases above can be solved fast by fixed dentures and two types of implants: screws and twin implant made from titanium. The screws are placed into the high and wide bone, The subperiosteal implant is placed around the low or thin bone
