Dental implants are used when tooth loss has resulted in gaps appearing between teeth and can be viewed as being replacement roots to which, cosmetic teeth can be attatched. They are also important in that they underpin and support adjacent 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 under the gums whereas Endosteal implants are screwed directly into the jaw – it would be dependent upon 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 thus the implants will need to be adjusted.
Yes of course and just as with real teeth they have to be correctly cleaned or else it can lead to plaque and infection and also gum disease.
It is not any more painfull than having a tooth removed which clearly depends on your pain tolerance and the type/amount of anesthetic used.
Normally not because it requires an anesthetist to be in attendance 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 gap.
This is where all of the teeth top and or bottom are replaced by a complete arch bridge held in place by 4 implants (can be 6).
