Dental implants are used when tooth loss has caused gaps to appear 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 neighboring 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 fitted on the jawbone below the gums.
Subperiosteal are placed on 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 about four months for the gums to fully repair themselves which involves shrinkage and consequently the implants will need to be adjusted.
Yes of course and just as with real teeth they have to be correctly cleaned or else it can cause plaque and infection and not to mention gum disease.
It is not any more painfull than having a tooth extracted which clearly depends upon your pain tolerance and the type/amount of anesthetic used.
Normally not because it needs a specialist to be in attendance 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 upper and or lower are replaced by a full arch bridge supported by 4 implants (sometimes 6).
