Dental implants are used when tooth loss has caused gaps to appear between teeth and can be viewed as being replacement roots upon which, cosmetic teeth can be fixed. They are also important in that they underpin and shore up neighboring teeth.
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 under 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 density of bone 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 around four months for the gums to fully repair themselves which involves shrinkage and for that reason the implants will need to be adjusted.
Yes of course and just as with real teeth they have to be properly cleaned or else it can cause plaque and infection and also gum disease.
It is not any sorer than having a tooth removed which obviously depends upon your pain tolerance and the type/amount of anesthetic utilised.
Normally not because it needs an anesthetist to be in attendance but it may be a chargeable service 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 gap.
This is where every one of the teeth top and or bottom are replaced by a complete arch bridge held in place by 4 implants (can be 6).
