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.
