What’s a Subperiosteal Dental Implant?

A subperiosteal dental implant is a tooth restoration option offered at Keels Family & Cosmetic Dentistry for patients with insufficient jaw bone density. This kind of dental implant is used to replace teeth that have been lost when insufficient healthy bone is available to support traditional implant methods.

A custom-made metal framework is placed beneath the gum tissue and rests on the jawbone during the subperiosteal dental implant procedure. The framework is designed to fit the unique shape of the patient’s jawbone and provide stability for the artificial teeth.

How do Subperiosteal Implants Work?

Subperiosteal implants provide a tooth restoration option for individuals with insufficient bone density in the jaw. In contrast to the conventional dental implants, which are embedded directly into the jawbone, subperiosteal implants utilize a custom-made metal framework to fit over and beneath the gum tissue.

The process of osseointegration, where the implant fuses with the jawbone, still occurs with subperiosteal implants, ensuring stability and functionality. These implants are typically used with limited jaw structure, challenging conventional implant techniques.

By placing the metal frame under the gum tissue, subperiosteal implants can securely support artificial teeth, providing a solution for patients who may not be suitable candidates for other types of implants due to bone loss or other factors.

Who Could Benefit from Subperiosteal Implants?

Subperiosteal implants are typically recommended for individuals with insufficient jawbone density to support traditional endosteal implants. They may be suitable for patients who cannot undergo bone grafting or have experienced bone loss due to factors like gum disease or tooth extractions.

Pros and Cons


  • Suitable for patients with limited bone density.
  • There is no need for invasive bone grafting surgery.
  • Custom-made for a precise fit.
  • It can support multiple missing teeth.


  • It may not be as stable as endosteal implants.
  • Greater risk of complications.
  • It may require adjustments over time.
  • It is less commonly used than endosteal implants.

The Cost

The cost of subperiosteal implants can vary widely depending on factors such as the number of implants needed, the case’s complexity, the materials used, and the location of the dental practice. These implants are often considered a more expensive option compared to endosteal implants due to their customized nature and the additional surgical steps involved. 

It’s essential to consult with your dentist in order to receive an individualized cost estimate that is based on your unique requirements and conditions.
