Endosteal implants and subperiosteal implants are the two main types that are commonly used.
• Endosteal Implant
This is surgically implanted into the jawbone. After the fusion of the implant to the surrounding bone, the top of the implant is uncovered and a specialized attachment is fixed to the implant. Eventually, artificial teeth are attached to the attachments.
Dentists prefer this implant because it is anchored into the vacant tooth root, which preserves the structure of the face and jawbone.
Subperiosteal implants are placed under the gum tissue or on top of the jawbone. This implant is mainly used on patients who do not have a strong enough jawbone for holding the implant.
