your questions answered

Dental implants are utilised when tooth loss has caused gaps to appear in 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 shore up neighboring 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 jaw under the gums.
Subperiosteal are placed on the jaw below 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 neighboring teeth.
Yes, it is possible however please note that it takes around four months for the gums to fully heal which involves shrinkage and correspondingly the implants have to be adjusted.
Yes of course and just as with genuine teeth they have to be properly cleaned or else it can cause plaque and infection and also gum disease.
It is not any more painfull than having a tooth removed which clearly depends upon 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 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 every one of the teeth top and or bottom are replaced by a full arch bridge held in place by 4 implants (can be 6).
