Dental implants are used when tooth loss has resulted in gaps appearing 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 teeth either side of the gap.
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 fitted onto the jawbone 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 on the density of bone of your jaw.
Whilst side effects are {extremely|very rare, they can 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 repair themselves which involves shrinkage and correspondingly the implants have to be adjusted.
Yes of course and just as with real teeth they have to be correctly cleaned otherwise it can cause plaque and infection as well as gum disease.
It is not any sorer than having a tooth extracted which obviously depends on your pain threshold and the type/amount of anesthetic utilised.
Normally not because it needs an anesthetist to be in attendance but it may be a chargeable service provided 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 full arch bridge held in place by 4 implants (can be 6).
