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 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 placed onto the jaw under the gums.
Subperiosteal are placed upon the jaw below 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 can include damage to the jaw, nerves and bordering 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 for that reason the implants will need to be adjusted.
Yes of course and just as with real 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 more painfull than having a tooth removed which clearly depends upon your pain threshold and the type/amount of anesthetic used.
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 all of the teeth upper and or lower are replaced by a full arch bridge supported by 4 implants (can be 6).
