Dental implants are utilised when tooth loss has caused gaps to appear 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 shore up neighboring 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 fitted on the jaw below the gums.
Subperiosteal are placed on the jaw below the gums whereas Endosteal implants are screwed directly into the jaw – it would be dependent on the bone density of your jaw.
Whilst side effects are {extremely|very rare, they include damage to the jaw, nerves and adjacent teeth.
Yes, it is possible however please note that it takes more or less four months for the gums to fully repair themselves which involves shrinkage and therefore the implants will need to be adjusted.
Yes of course and just as with genuine teeth they have to be properly cleaned or else it can lead to 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 requires an anesthetist to be there but it may be a chargeable service 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 upper and or lower are replaced by a full arch bridge supported by 4 implants (can be 6).
