Dr. Michael Webster here, your trusted Implant Dentist and Owner at Kelowna Dental Centre! In this blog post, I want to dive into the fascinating world of dental implants and explore two common types: endosteal implants and subperiosteal implants.

Join me as we explore the characteristics, benefits, and considerations of endosteal and subperiosteal implants, helping you choose the best dental implant solution for your unique needs.

What Are Endosteal Implants?

Endosteal implants are the most commonly used dental implants and are typically made of titanium. Shaped like small screws, they are surgically placed directly into the jawbone. The implant protrudes through the gumline and serves as an anchor to hold the replacement tooth or teeth in place. Endosteal implants offer a secure and stable foundation for dental restorations and are most suitable for individuals with sufficient jawbone health, which is determined via a pre-procedure consultation.

What Are Subperiosteal Implants?

In cases where there is inadequate healthy jawbone to support endosteal dental implants, we may use subperiosteal dental implants instead. These implants are placed either on or above the jawbone and beneath the gum tissue. Subperiosteal implants protrude through the gumline, providing a framework for supporting the replacement tooth (or teeth).

Endosteal Implants vs. Subperiosteal Implants

Endosteal implants and subperiosteal implants differ primarily in their placement within the oral cavity. Endosteal implants are inserted directly into the jawbone, offering supreme stability and longevity. They are typically our preferred choice due to their reliability and predictable results. On the other hand, subperiosteal implants are best suited for cases when a patient’s jawbone is unable to support traditional implants.

Dental Implant Costs

Understanding the cost of dental implants is an essential factor in your decision-making process. The cost of endosteal or subperiosteal implants can vary based on several factors, including the complexity of the case, the number of implants needed, and any additional procedures required. At Kelowna Dental Centre, we offer transparent pricing and personalized financing plans to accommodate our patients’ unique needs and budgets. We strive to deliver exceptional value by providing high-quality dental implants that restore both function and aesthetics.
