your questions answered

Dental implants are utilised when tooth loss has caused gaps to appear in between teeth and can be looked at as being replacement roots upon which, cosmetic teeth can be fixed. They are also important in that they underpin and shore up 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 upon 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 more or less four months for the gums to fully heal which involves shrinkage and for that reason the implants have to be adjusted.
Yes of course and just as with genuine teeth they have to be correctly cleaned otherwise it can cause plaque and infection and not to mention gum disease.
It is not any more painfull than having a tooth removed 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 option 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 all of the teeth top and or bottom are replaced by a full arch bridge supported by 4 implants (sometimes 6).
