Subperiosteal is a type of dental implant that consist of metal frame and it is placed beneath the gum tissue where the jawbone is located. As the gum continue to heal the metal frames are fixed permanently in the jawbone. There are also posts which are attached to the frame and they bypass along the gum in order to ensure the artificial teeth are mounted in those posts. The subperiosteal usually serves as a method of single replacement teeth and this type of implant is very stable and safe.
Another type of dental implant is the endosteal which is implanted directly into the jawbone in a surgical way. There will be a second surgery which will be performed after the gum tissue has healed so as to join the post with the original implant. The artificial teeth are attached to the post after the second surgery and they are normally bridge individually or into groups.
