Dental implants are used when tooth loss has caused gaps to appear 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 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 under 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 can include damage to the jaw, nerves and neighboring teeth.
Yes, it is possible however please note that it takes around four months for the gums to fully heal which involves shrinkage and so the implants have 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 as well as gum disease.
It is not any more painfull 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 there but it may be a chargeable service provided 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 upper and or lower are replaced by a complete arch bridge held in place by 4 implants (sometimes 6).
