FORT LEE, N.J. – Authors Leonard I. Linkow and Sheldon Winkler tackle the modern approach to the science of tooth implants in their book Renaissance of the Subperiosteal Implant. This book describes recent advances and techniques in the world of dentistry and reviews conventional and new methodological approaches that benefit people who have lost all of their natural teeth.

Dr. Gustav Dahl of Sweden inserted the first lower subperiosteal implant in 1940. It was a mesh frame fabricated from stainless steel with screws used to connect the abutments to the mesh framework.

The design of subperiosteal implants, which rest on bony surfaces below the gums, has changed considerably throughout the years. A major advance occurred in 1984 when Linkow developed the mandibular tripodal subperiosteal implant. In its present design, it is indicated for edentulous patients with advanced mandibular atrophy who cannot be successfully treated by conventional root form implants without significant prior bone grafting and reconstruction.

The implant procedure combines a harmonious union of delicate surgical and impression techniques, with advanced biochemical considerations in the fabrication of the implant frameworks and subsequent prostheses.

Wearing a conventional complete denture with advanced atrophy of the lower jaw can cause severe pain from direct pressure to the exposed nerves and supporting structures. Denture retention can be minimal and the ability to masticate compromised. Secondary systemic problems related to inadequate mastication often occur with resultant digestive disorders. Psychological and emotional effects are common, causing depression and social withdrawal. The affected patients are truly debilitated and can be considered dental cripples.

This massive academic book describes both conventional and Dr. Linkow’s new advances in subperiosteal implant fabrication for individuals who have denture problems as a result of tooth loss and bone atrophy.

Drs. Linkow and Winkler show multiple case studies and describe treatment planning, incisions, tissue reflection, impression making, casting designs, implant insertion, suturing, and fabrication of the definitive prostheses. Dr. Linkow’s lower tripodal subperiosteal technique usually requires two surgical visits, about three weeks apart. Patient overdentures can be placed into immediate function after insertion.

Subperiosteal implants have been proven throughout the years to be a reliable approach to restore and rehabilitate the severely resorbed toothless lower arch.

About the Author
Dr. Leonard I. Linkow graduated from the New York University College of Dentistry in 1952, and soon discovered the rapidly evolving field of tooth implants. He mastered advanced implant techniques by taking existing, often inadequate American and European methods and, through trial and error, transforming them into elegant and practical systems. He also became a proponent of life-improvement; he knew his work could often improve a patient's appearance and bring an end to their dental suffering. He is a native of Brooklyn, N.Y., was a radio operator and tail gunner in the U.S. Army Air Force in the final days of World War II, and held a minor league baseball contract, having tried out for the New York Giants under Carl Hubbell and Mel Ott, and twenty-five years later was stunned to learn he was on a list of potential nominees for the Nobel Prize in Medicine. His life has been one of tribulation and triumph.

Dr. Sheldon Winkler is Professor Emeritus at Temple University, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and Adjunct Professor, School of Dental Medicine, Midwestern University, Glendale, Arizona. He previously served as Professor and Chairperson of the Department of Prosthodontics and Dean of Research, Advanced Education, and Continuing Education at Temple University School of Dentistry. Dr. Winkler is an educator, author, editor, researcher, and national and international speaker on prosthodontics, implant dentistry, dental materials, and geriatric dentistry. He has authored or co-authored six textbooks (including Essentials of Complete Denture Prosthodontics), approximately 185 articles and chapters in professional journals and textbooks, and founded the journal Implant Dentistry, which he edited for six years. Dr. Winkler is currently Senior Editor of the Journal of Oral Implantology. Dr. Winkler serves as educational and prosthodontic consultant to dental schools throughout the world. He is President of the American Academy of Implant Prosthodontics and also serves as Executive Director of the Academy. He is the developer of the pour (fluid resin) technique for denture base processing. Dr. Winkler is an authority on music of the Second World War and has contributed articles to World War II History magazine. His book, The Music of World War II: War Songs and Their Stories, was published in March of 2013 by Merriam Press. He resides in Scottsdale, Arizona.
