WHAT ARE YOUR implant NEEDS?

Single implants are used to address missing teeth whereas bridges are used when you have adjacent teeth missing and fixed full arch instead of dentures.

Dental implants are utilised when tooth loss has caused gaps to appear 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 adjacent 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 placed onto the jaw below 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 include damage to the jaw, nerves and bordering teeth.
Yes, it is possible however you should be aware that it takes very nearly four months for the gums to fully repair themselves which involves shrinkage and hence the implants have to be adjusted.
Yes of course and just as with real teeth they have to be properly cleaned otherwise it can lead to plaque and infection as well as gum disease.
It is not any sorer than having a tooth removed which obviously depends on your pain threshold and the type/amount of anesthetic used.
Normally not because it needs an anesthetist to be in attendance but it may be a chargeable option offered by your dentist.
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 every one of the teeth upper and or lower are replaced by a full arch bridge supported by 4 implants (can be 6).
