Dental implants are used when tooth loss has caused gaps to appear 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 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 jaw under the gums.
Subperiosteal are placed on 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 can include damage to the jaw, nerves and bordering 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 in view of that 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 and also gum disease.
It is not any sorer than having a tooth removed which obviously depends upon your pain tolerance and the type/amount of anesthetic used.
Normally not because it needs a specialist to be there but it may be a chargeable service provided 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 every one of the teeth top and or bottom are replaced by a full arch bridge held in place by 4 implants (sometimes 6).
