Dental implants are utilised when tooth loss has resulted in gaps appearing between teeth and can be viewed 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 onto the jawbone below the gums.
Subperiosteal are placed on the jaw under 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 include damage to the jaw, nerves and adjacent teeth.
Yes, it is possible however please note that it takes around four months for the gums to fully repair themselves which involves shrinkage and as a result the implants have to be adjusted.
Yes of course and just as with real teeth they have to be properly cleaned or else it can lead to plaque and infection and not to mention gum disease.
It is not any sorer than having a tooth removed which obviously depends on your pain tolerance and the type/amount of anesthetic utilised.
Normally not because it needs an anesthetist to be in attendance but it may be a chargeable option 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 all of the teeth top and or bottom are replaced by a full arch bridge held in place by 4 implants (can be 6).
