What are subperiosteal implants?

Subperiosteal implants are dental implants made out of a metal framework. This metal frame is attached under your gum tissue but above your jawbone. Protruding from the metal frame of the subperiosteal implant are small metal posts. These are used as the anchors for the replacement teeth that your oral surgeon will attach to the implant. This and other types of implants may be a good choice if you are missing more than one tooth in the same area of your mouth.
