Dental implants are utilised when tooth loss has caused gaps to appear between teeth and can be looked at as being replacement roots upon which, cosmetic teeth can be fixed. They are also important in that they underpin and support teeth either side of the gap.
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 fitted on 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 upon the density of bone of your jaw.
Whilst side effects are {extremely|very rare, they can include damage to the jaw, nerves and adjacent teeth.
Yes, it is possible however you should be aware that it takes around four months for the gums to fully repair themselves which involves shrinkage and so the implants have to be adjusted.
Yes of course and just as with genuine teeth they have to be correctly cleaned otherwise it can lead to plaque and infection as well as 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 in attendance but it may be a chargeable service 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 every one of the teeth top and or bottom are replaced by a full arch bridge supported by 4 implants (sometimes 6).
