your questions answered

Dental implants are used when tooth loss has caused gaps to appear in 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 shore up 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 below 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 include damage to the jaw, nerves and neighboring teeth.
Yes, it is possible however you should be aware that it takes more or less four months for the gums to fully heal which involves shrinkage and as a result the implants have 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 and not to mention gum disease.
It is not any more painfull than having a tooth removed which obviously depends on your pain tolerance and the type/amount of anesthetic used.
Normally not because it needs an anesthetist 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 (can be 6).
