Frequently asked questions

Dental implants are used when tooth loss has caused gaps to appear in between teeth and can be viewed as being replacement roots upon which, cosmetic teeth can be fixed. They are also important in that they underpin and support neighboring 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 fitted onto the jaw 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 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.
