Dental implants are utilised when tooth loss has resulted in gaps appearing in between teeth and can be looked at as being replacement roots to which, cosmetic teeth can be fixed. They are also important in that they underpin and shore up 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 onto the jawbone below the gums.
Subperiosteal are placed upon 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 bordering teeth.
Yes, it is possible however please note that it takes about four months for the gums to fully heal which involves shrinkage and in view of that the implants have to be adjusted.
Yes of course and just as with genuine teeth they have to be properly cleaned otherwise it can lead to plaque and infection and not to mention 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 utilised.
Normally not because it needs an anesthetist to be there 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 missing tooth.
This is where every one of the teeth upper and or lower are replaced by a complete arch bridge supported by 4 implants (sometimes 6).
