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 upon 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 below 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 can include damage to the jaw, nerves and bordering teeth.
Yes, it is possible however please note that it takes very nearly four months for the gums to fully repair themselves which involves shrinkage and thus the implants have to be adjusted.
Yes of course and just as with real teeth they have to be properly cleaned otherwise it can cause plaque and infection and not to mention gum disease.
It is not any sorer than having a tooth removed which clearly depends on your pain tolerance and the type/amount of anesthetic used.
Normally not because it needs an anesthetist to be in attendance but it may be a chargeable option 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 every one of the teeth top and or bottom are replaced by a full arch bridge supported by 4 implants (can be 6).
