Subperiosteal Implants Ask The Dentist Edward Leventhal Question:
I am looking for information about subperiosteal implants to replace the upper four front teeth.

It seems that the act of eating could cause the procedure to fail. I have been using a bridge for most of the past 50 years.

I really want implants, but need information about the success rate for this area of the mouth. ... Visitor from CA

Answer:
You do not want a subperiostal implant for four front teeth. It's not the correct implant.

You possibly need endosteal implants, or fixed bridgework.

If you cap your teeth from first molar to first molar, have all teeth splinted and attach the four front teeth as pontics, you will have the best possible result, as long as your upper teeth are in good condition with adequate bone support.
