your questions answered

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 fixed. They are also important in that they underpin and support 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 placed on 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 neighboring teeth.
Yes, it is possible however you should be aware that it takes about four months for the gums to fully heal which involves shrinkage and for that reason 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 not to mention 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 used.
Normally not because it needs a specialist 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 missing tooth.
This is where every one of the teeth top and or bottom are replaced by a full arch bridge held in place by 4 implants (can be 6).
