Dental implants are utilised when tooth loss has caused gaps to appear 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 shore up teeth either side of the gap.
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 placed on 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 include damage to the jaw, nerves and neighboring 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 for that reason the implants will need 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 and also 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 needs a specialist to be in attendance 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 every one of the teeth top and or bottom are replaced by a full arch bridge supported by 4 implants (sometimes 6).
