your questions answered

Dental implants are utilised when tooth loss has caused gaps to appear between teeth and can be looked at as being replacement roots to which, cosmetic teeth can be fixed. They are also important in that they underpin and support 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 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 on the bone density of your jaw.
Whilst side effects are {extremely|very rare, they include damage to the jaw, nerves and bordering teeth.
Yes, it is possible however please note that it takes around four months for the gums to fully heal which involves shrinkage and so the implants have to be adjusted.
Yes of course and just as with real teeth they have to be correctly cleaned or else it can cause plaque and infection and also gum disease.
It is not any more painfull than having a tooth extracted which clearly depends on 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 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 missing tooth.
This is where every one of the teeth top and or bottom are replaced by a complete arch bridge supported by 4 implants (sometimes 6).
