Dental implants are used when tooth loss has caused gaps to appear between teeth and can be viewed as being replacement roots upon which, cosmetic teeth can be attatched. 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 fitted on the jaw under the gums.
Subperiosteal are placed on 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 include damage to the jaw, nerves and neighboring teeth.
Yes, it is possible however you should be aware that it takes about four months for the gums to fully heal which involves shrinkage and hence 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 on your pain tolerance and the type/amount of anesthetic used.
Normally not because it needs a specialist to be there but it may be a chargeable service offered by your dentist.
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 complete arch bridge supported by 4 implants (can be 6).
