To address these issues, manufacturers developed magnet-based conduction implants (MBCIs) that use magnetic coupling to transcutaneously attach a sound processor with a magnet external to the skin to an osseointegrated implant
with a magnet beneath the skin.
Single teeth can be replaced using a solo osseointegrated implant
, which can be thought of as the replacement root of the tooth.
In the final device design (design C, Figure 2), the bracket was eliminated, the bridging connector was shortened to adjust to the 2 cm-deep soft tissue channel, and the connector as well as the bone-capping portion of the osseointegrated implant
was coated with a nonabrasive titanium niobium oxynitride ([Ti,Nb]ON) ceramic (Orthodynamics GmbH).
These electrodes record signals which are transmitted via the osseointegrated implant
to the prostheses, where the signals are finally decoded and translated into motions.
placement depends almost exclusively on the quantity of bone available.

The term osseoperception has been stated to imply "the mechanosensibility associated with osseointegrated implant
rehabilitation," further defined as "(i) the sensation arising from mechanical stimulation of a bone-anchored prosthesis, transduced by mechanoreceptors that may include those located in muscle, joint, mucosal, cutaneous and periosteal tissues, together with (ii) a change in central neural processing in maintaining sensorimotor function" .
