Dental implants are used when tooth loss has resulted in gaps appearing in between teeth and can be viewed as being replacement roots upon 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 on the density of bone of your jaw.
Whilst side effects are {extremely|very rare, they include damage to the jaw, nerves and bordering teeth.
Yes, it is possible however please note that it takes about four months for the gums to fully repair themselves which involves shrinkage and as a result the implants will need to be adjusted.
Yes of course and just as with genuine teeth they have to be properly cleaned otherwise it can cause plaque and infection as well as gum disease.
It is not any sorer than having a tooth removed which clearly depends upon your pain tolerance and the type/amount of anesthetic utilised.
Normally not because it needs a specialist to be there 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 gap.
This is where every one of the teeth top and or bottom are replaced by a full arch bridge supported by 4 implants (sometimes 6).
