Dental implants are utilised when tooth loss has resulted in gaps appearing in between teeth and can be viewed as being replacement roots to which, cosmetic teeth can be fixed. They are also important in that they underpin and shore up adjacent teeth.
The main types of dental implant are endosteal where the implant (looks like a small screw) is screwed into the jaw bone and the other is subperiosteal where the implants are on a framework that is placed on the jaw below the gums.
Subperiosteal are placed on the jaw under the gums whereas Endosteal implants are screwed directly into the jaw – it would be dependent on the density of bone of your jaw.
Whilst side effects are {extremely|very rare, they can include damage to the jaw, nerves and neighboring teeth.
Yes, it is possible however you should be aware that it takes about four months for the gums to fully heal which involves shrinkage and consequently the implants will need to be adjusted.
Yes of course and just as with genuine teeth they have to be properly cleaned or else it can lead to plaque and infection and not to mention gum disease.
It is not any sorer than having a tooth extracted which clearly depends upon your pain tolerance and the type/amount of anesthetic used.
Normally not because it needs a specialist to be in attendance but it may be a chargeable option offered by the dental practice.
If you are replacing a single tooth then the gap can be bridged by crowning the teeth either side of the missing tooth.
This is where all of the teeth upper and or lower are replaced by a full arch bridge held in place by 4 implants (sometimes 6).
