Will dental implant procedures cause much discomfort?

by Dr. Br

The discomfort experienced after the placement of dental implants is generally equivalent to that experienced from the extraction of a tooth. Most implants are placed using local anesthetic only.

Sedation can be used with the more apprehensive patients and occasionally, if extensive surgery is required, a general anesthetic may be recommended.

The use of dental implants is designed to help you avoid pain and discomfort.

Dental Implants Discomfort...?
by: Anonymous

Just as with any surgery, there can be some discomfort; however, anesthetic and patient sedation are used to eliminate any discomfort at the time of the procedure. Approximately 95 percent of patients report discomfort of 0-2 on a scale of 0-10 the day after the dental implants are placed.

The doctor will prescribe medications to ease any discomfort that may occur. Special care will be taken to stay in contact with you after the surgery to be sure that you remain comfortable.
