Dental implants are used when tooth loss has resulted in gaps appearing in between teeth and can be viewed as being replacement roots upon which, cosmetic teeth can be fixed. They are also important in that they underpin and support adjacent teeth.
The most common 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 fitted onto the jaw below the gums.
Subperiosteal are placed upon the jaw below 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 bordering teeth.
Yes, it is possible however please note that it takes around four months for the gums to fully heal which involves shrinkage and as a result the implants have to be adjusted.
Yes of course and just as with real teeth they have to be properly cleaned or else it can lead to plaque and infection as well as gum disease.
It is not any more painfull than having a tooth extracted which clearly depends upon your pain tolerance and the type/amount of anesthetic utilised.
Normally not because it requires a specialist to be in attendance but it may be a chargeable service 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 every one of the teeth top and or bottom are replaced by a full arch bridge supported by 4 implants (sometimes 6).
