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 attatched. They are also important in that they underpin and support neighboring 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 placed onto the jawbone 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 upon the density of bone of your jaw.
Whilst side effects are {extremely|very rare, they include damage to the jaw, nerves and adjacent teeth.
Yes, it is possible however you should be aware that it takes about 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 genuine teeth they have to be properly cleaned otherwise it can lead to plaque and infection as well as gum disease.
It is not any sorer than having a tooth extracted which clearly depends on your pain threshold and the type/amount of anesthetic used.
Normally not because it requires a specialist to be there but it may be a chargeable option provided by your dentist.
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 every one of the teeth upper and or lower are replaced by a full arch bridge held in place by 4 implants (sometimes 6).
