your questions answered

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 teeth either side of the gap.
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 fitted on the jaw below the gums.
Subperiosteal are placed on the jaw below the gums whereas Endosteal implants are screwed directly into the jaw – it would be dependent on the density of bone of your jaw.
Whilst side effects are {extremely|very rare, they can include damage to the jaw, nerves and bordering teeth.
Yes, it is possible however please note that it takes approximately four months for the gums to fully heal which involves shrinkage and as a result the implants will need to be adjusted.
Yes of course and just as with genuine teeth they have to be correctly cleaned otherwise it can cause plaque and infection and not to mention 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 requires an anesthetist to be there but it may be a chargeable option provided by your dentist.
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 complete arch bridge supported by 4 implants (can be 6).
