Frequently asked questions

Dental implants are utilised when tooth loss has caused gaps to appear between teeth and can be looked at as being replacement roots upon which, cosmetic teeth can be fixed. They are also important in that they underpin and shore up 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 on the jawbone below the gums.
Subperiosteal are placed upon the jaw below 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 can 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 gap.
This is where every one of the teeth upper and or lower are replaced by a full arch bridge supported by 4 implants (sometimes 6).
