Dental implants are utilised 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 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 onto the jaw below the gums.
Subperiosteal are placed upon the jaw below 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.
Yes, it is possible however you should be aware that it takes around four months for the gums to fully repair themselves which involves shrinkage and thus 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 lead to plaque and infection and also gum disease.
It is not any sorer than having a tooth removed which clearly depends on your pain threshold and the type/amount of anesthetic utilised.
Normally not because it needs a specialist to be there 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 missing tooth.
This is where all of the teeth top and or bottom are replaced by a complete arch bridge supported by 4 implants (can be 6).
