your questions answered

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 fixed. They are also important in that they underpin and support adjacent teeth.
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 onto the jaw below 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 you should be aware that it takes about four months for the gums to fully heal which involves shrinkage and therefore the implants have to be adjusted.
Yes of course and just as with genuine teeth they have to be correctly cleaned or else it can cause plaque and infection as well as gum disease.
It is not any sorer than having a tooth extracted which clearly depends on your pain threshold and the type/amount of anesthetic utilised.
Normally not because it requires an anesthetist to be there but it may be a chargeable option offered 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 complete arch bridge supported by 4 implants (can be 6).
