your questions answered

Dental implants are used when tooth loss has resulted in gaps appearing in between teeth and can be viewed as being replacement roots to which, cosmetic teeth can be attatched. They are also important in that they underpin and support neighboring teeth.
The main 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 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 on the bone density 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 you should be aware that it takes about four months for the gums to fully repair themselves which involves shrinkage and hence the implants will need 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 as well as gum disease.
It is not any more painfull than having a tooth removed which obviously depends upon your pain threshold 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 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 every one of the teeth top and or bottom are replaced by a full arch bridge supported by 4 implants (can be 6).
