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 attatched. They are also important in that they underpin and support adjacent teeth.
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 upon the jaw under 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.
Yes, it is possible however you should be aware that it takes more or less four months for the gums to fully repair themselves which involves shrinkage and consequently the implants will need to be adjusted.
Yes of course and just as with real teeth they have to be properly cleaned otherwise it can cause plaque and infection as well as gum disease.
It is not any sorer than having a tooth extracted which obviously depends on your pain threshold and the type/amount of anesthetic utilised.
Normally not because it needs an anesthetist to be there but it may be a chargeable service offered by the dental practice.
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 upper and or lower are replaced by a full arch bridge supported by 4 implants (sometimes 6).
