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 support neighboring 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 jawbone 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 can include damage to the jaw, nerves and adjacent teeth.
Yes, it is possible however you should be aware that it takes around four months for the gums to fully heal which involves shrinkage and thus the implants have to be adjusted.
Yes of course and just as with real teeth they have to be properly cleaned otherwise it can lead to plaque and infection and not to mention gum disease.
It is not any sorer than having a tooth removed which clearly depends on your pain tolerance and the type/amount of anesthetic used.
Normally not because it requires an anesthetist to be in attendance 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 gap.
This is where every one of the teeth upper and or lower are replaced by a complete arch bridge supported by 4 implants (sometimes 6).
