Dental implants are utilised when tooth loss has resulted in gaps appearing in between teeth and can be viewed as being replacement roots to which, cosmetic teeth can be attatched. They are also important in that they underpin and support 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 jawbone below the gums.
Subperiosteal are placed on the jaw under the gums whereas Endosteal implants are screwed directly into the jaw – it would be dependent upon the density of bone of your jaw.
Whilst side effects are {extremely|very rare, they can include damage to the jaw, nerves and bordering teeth.
Yes, it is possible however please note that it takes approximately four months for the gums to fully repair themselves which involves shrinkage and so the implants have to be adjusted.
Yes of course and just as with genuine teeth they have to be properly cleaned otherwise it can cause plaque and infection and also gum disease.
It is not any sorer than having a tooth removed which obviously depends upon your pain tolerance and the type/amount of anesthetic utilised.
Normally not because it needs an anesthetist to be there but it may be a chargeable option 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).
