Everything You Should Know About Subperiosteal Implants
Dental implants are an important tool in restoration dentistry. They allow dentists to replace a patient's missing teeth without the use of dental bridges or dentures. When people think of dental implants, they usually think of endosteal implants, which are placed into holes drilled in the patient's jawbone. However, subperiosteal implants are another type of dental implant available to patients. These implants are viable even if the patient has experienced significant jawbone erosion.
