Dental implants are used when tooth loss has caused gaps to appear in between teeth and can be looked at as being replacement roots upon which, cosmetic teeth can be attatched. They are also important in that they underpin and support adjacent 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 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 density of bone 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 please note that it takes more or less four months for the gums to fully repair themselves which involves shrinkage and in view of that 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 cause plaque and infection and also gum disease.
It is not any more painfull than having a tooth extracted which obviously depends upon your pain threshold and the type/amount of anesthetic used.
Normally not because it requires a specialist to be there but it may be a chargeable service 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 missing tooth.
This is where all of the teeth top and or bottom are replaced by a complete arch bridge supported by 4 implants (can be 6).
