Dental implants are used when tooth loss has caused gaps to appear 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 shore up teeth either side of the gap.
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 on the jaw below the gums.
Subperiosteal are placed upon the jaw under 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 bordering teeth.
Yes, it is possible however you should be aware that it takes more or less four months for the gums to fully repair themselves which involves shrinkage and consequently the implants have to be adjusted.
Yes of course and just as with real teeth they have to be correctly cleaned or else it can cause plaque and infection and not to mention gum disease.
It is not any sorer than having a tooth removed which clearly depends on your pain threshold and the type/amount of anesthetic utilised.
Normally not because it needs 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 top and or bottom are replaced by a complete arch bridge supported by 4 implants (sometimes 6).
