your questions answered

Dental implants are utilised when tooth loss has resulted in gaps appearing between teeth and can be looked at as being replacement roots to which, cosmetic teeth can be attatched. 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 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 bone density of your jaw.
Whilst side effects are {extremely|very rare, they include damage to the jaw, nerves and neighboring 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 consequently the implants have to be adjusted.
Yes of course and just as with genuine teeth they have to be correctly cleaned otherwise it can lead to plaque and infection as well as gum disease.
It is not any sorer than having a tooth extracted which clearly depends on your pain threshold and the type/amount of anesthetic used.
Normally not because it needs a specialist to be in attendance but it may be a chargeable service 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 full arch bridge supported by 4 implants (sometimes 6).
