Frequently asked questions

Dental implants are used when tooth loss has resulted in gaps appearing in between teeth and can be looked at as being replacement roots upon which, cosmetic teeth can be fixed. 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 placed onto the jaw below the gums.
Subperiosteal are placed on 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 include damage to the jaw, nerves and adjacent teeth.

It is not any sorer than having a tooth extracted which clearly depends upon your pain tolerance and the type/amount of anesthetic used.
Normally not because it needs a specialist 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 upper and or lower are replaced by a full arch bridge held in place by 4 implants (can be 6).
