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 in place of dentures.

Dental implants are used when tooth loss has caused gaps to appear 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 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 placed onto the jaw 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 on the bone density of your jaw.
Whilst side effects are {extremely|very rare, they include damage to the jaw, nerves and neighboring teeth.
Yes, it is possible however you should be aware that it takes very nearly four months for the gums to fully heal which involves shrinkage and thus the implants have to be adjusted.
Yes of course and just as with real teeth they have to be correctly cleaned or else it can cause plaque and infection and also gum disease.
It is not any sorer than having a tooth removed which obviously depends on your pain tolerance and the type/amount of anesthetic used.
Normally not because it requires an anesthetist to be in attendance but it may be a chargeable service 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 missing tooth.
This is where all of the teeth upper and or lower are replaced by a complete arch bridge held in place by 4 implants (can be 6).
