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 adjacent 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 placed onto the jaw under the gums.
Subperiosteal are placed upon 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 can include damage to the jaw, nerves and bordering teeth.
Yes, it is possible however please note that it takes around four months for the gums to fully heal which involves shrinkage and in view of that the implants have to be adjusted.
Yes of course and just as with genuine teeth they have to be correctly cleaned otherwise it can lead to plaque and infection and also gum disease.
It is not any sorer than having a tooth extracted which obviously depends upon your pain tolerance and the type/amount of anesthetic used.
Normally not because it requires an anesthetist to be in attendance but it may be a chargeable service provided 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 all of the teeth top and or bottom are replaced by a full arch bridge supported by 4 implants (sometimes 6).
