As the gum continue to heal the metal frames are fixed permanently in the jawbone. So as to ensure that the artificial teeth are mounted in a good way there are posts which are connected to the frame and they protrude to the outside of the gum. This kind of implant is very safe and stable and it serve as a method of single replacement teeth.

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. The artificial teeth are attached to the post after the second surgery and they are normally bridge individually or into groups.
