WHAT ARE YOUR implant NEEDS?

Single implants are used to address missing teeth whereas bridges are used when you have adjacent teeth missing and fixed full arch instead of dentures.

Dental implants are used when tooth loss has caused gaps to appear 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 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 onto the jawbone under the gums.
Subperiosteal are placed on 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 include damage to the jaw, nerves and adjacent teeth.
Yes, it is possible however please note that it takes about four months for the gums to fully repair themselves which involves shrinkage and thus the implants will need to be adjusted.
Yes of course and just as with genuine teeth they have to be correctly cleaned otherwise it can cause plaque and infection as well as gum disease.
It is not any more painfull than having a tooth extracted which obviously depends on your pain tolerance and the type/amount of anesthetic used.
Normally not because it needs an anesthetist 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 gap.
This is where all of the teeth upper and or lower are replaced by a full arch bridge supported by 4 implants (can be 6).
