Dental implants are utilised when tooth loss has resulted in gaps appearing 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 teeth either side of the gap.
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 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 density of bone of your jaw.
Whilst side effects are {extremely|very rare, they can include damage to the jaw, nerves and neighboring teeth.

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 full arch bridge held in place by 4 implants (sometimes 6).
