your questions answered

Dental implants are used when tooth loss has resulted in gaps appearing in between teeth and can be looked at as being replacement roots to which, cosmetic teeth can be attatched. They are also important in that they underpin and support adjacent 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 under 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 neighboring teeth.
Yes, it is possible however please note that it takes very nearly 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 genuine teeth they have to be correctly cleaned or else 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 tolerance and the type/amount of anesthetic utilised.
Normally not because it needs a specialist to be in attendance 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 missing tooth.
This is where all of the teeth top and or bottom are replaced by a full arch bridge held in place by 4 implants (can be 6).
