Dental implants are used 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 shore up 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 under the gums.
Subperiosteal are placed on the jaw below 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 you should be aware that it takes around four months for the gums to fully repair themselves which involves shrinkage and in view of that the implants will need to be adjusted.
Yes of course and just as with genuine 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 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 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 missing tooth.
This is where all of the teeth top and or bottom are replaced by a full arch bridge supported by 4 implants (sometimes 6).
