Frequently asked questions

Dental implants are used when tooth loss has resulted in gaps appearing 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 teeth either side of the gap.
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 on the jaw below the gums.
Subperiosteal are placed upon the jaw under 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 neighboring teeth.
