Subperiosteal implants (ISP) have slowly been downgraded, in favor of endosseous implants, short implants, all-on-4 techniques, sinus elevations, lateralization and transposition of the inferior alveolar nerve, anatomical buttresses in the maxilla, as well as modern bone regeneration techniques. The aim of this article is to review the evolution of ISPs since their invention in 1943, and present an update of these techniques, Ranc-Implants, by presenting a clinical case. Ranc-Implants represent a viable alternative in cases of severe atrophy of the jaws that, in other cases, would require advanced bone regeneration procedures for the insertion of conventional implants.
KEY WORDS: subperiosteal implants, customized dental implants, dental implantation, dental implants.
