There are metal frames which are contained in the subperiosteal and these frames are placed in the jawbone beneath the gum tissue. It is in the jawbone where the metal frame is fixed during the process of gum healing. 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. Immediately after the gum tissue has healed there will be another second surgery which will be done in order to ensure that the post is strongly attached to the original dental implant. After the second surgery the artificial teeth will be placed at the bridge either individually or into groups and these teeth are usually attached into the post.
