Dental implants are utilised when tooth loss has resulted in gaps appearing in between teeth and can be looked at as being replacement roots upon which, cosmetic teeth can be attatched. 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 below the gums.
Subperiosteal are placed upon 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 bordering teeth.
Yes, it is possible however you should be aware that it takes more or less four months for the gums to fully repair themselves which involves shrinkage and correspondingly the implants will need 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 as well as gum disease.
It is not any sorer than having a tooth extracted which obviously depends upon your pain tolerance and the type/amount of anesthetic used.
Normally not because it needs an anesthetist to be there but it may be a chargeable service offered by your dentist.
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 top and or bottom are replaced by a full arch bridge supported by 4 implants (sometimes 6).
