Dental implants are used when tooth loss has resulted in gaps appearing in between teeth and can be looked at as being replacement roots to which, cosmetic teeth can be fixed. They are also important in that they underpin and shore up neighboring 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 onto the jaw under the gums.
Subperiosteal are placed upon the jaw under the gums whereas Endosteal implants are screwed directly into the jaw – it would be dependent on the bone density of your jaw.
Whilst side effects are {extremely|very rare, they include damage to the jaw, nerves and bordering teeth.
Yes, it is possible however you should be aware that it takes very nearly four months for the gums to fully repair themselves which involves shrinkage and hence the implants have to be adjusted.
Yes of course and just as with real teeth they have to be properly cleaned otherwise it can lead to plaque and infection and also gum disease.
It is not any more painfull than having a tooth extracted which clearly depends on your pain threshold and the type/amount of anesthetic utilised.
Normally not because it requires a specialist to be in attendance but it may be a chargeable option offered by your dentist.
If you are replacing a single tooth then the gap can be bridged by crowning the teeth either side of the gap.
This is where all of the teeth top and or bottom are replaced by a complete arch bridge supported by 4 implants (can be 6).
