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 fixed. 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 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 on the bone density of your jaw.
Whilst side effects are {extremely|very rare, they include damage to the jaw, nerves and neighboring teeth.
Yes, it is possible however please note that it takes approximately four months for the gums to fully heal 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 otherwise it can lead to 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 threshold and the type/amount of anesthetic used.
Normally not because it requires a specialist 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 missing tooth.
This is where every one of the teeth top and or bottom are replaced by a full arch bridge held in place by 4 implants (sometimes 6).
