Frequently asked questions

Dental implants are used when tooth loss has resulted in gaps appearing 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 placed on the jawbone under the gums.
Subperiosteal are placed on the jaw under 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 adjacent teeth.

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 supported by 4 implants (can be 6).
