your questions answered

Dental implants are utilised when tooth loss has resulted in gaps appearing between teeth and can be looked at as being replacement roots to 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 fitted on the jawbone under 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 adjacent 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 therefore the implants will need to be adjusted.
Yes of course and just as with genuine teeth they have to be properly cleaned or else it can cause plaque and infection as well as gum disease.
It is not any more painfull than having a tooth extracted which obviously 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 service provided by your dentist.
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 every one of the teeth upper and or lower are replaced by a full arch bridge supported by 4 implants (sometimes 6).
