One of the most common questions we receive about dental implants is: "Placing Dental Implants Is it a Painful Procedure?". The Answer is No.
We understand the concerned of pain and discomfort associated with trips to the dentist. Larger dental procedures like Dental Implants can cause a large amount of anxiety but do not worry, the placement of Dental Implants is not typically painful. The actual placement of Dental Implants on itself tends to be less bothersome than having teeth extracted. We also do several things to reduce any post-op inflammation and discomfort, this includes the use of several pre and post-op medications that helps to reduce the risk of pain swelling and infection.
During the actual procedure, you will be completely numb and then for comfort and ease of mind, we offer sedation a pair of headphones to help you relax even more during the procedure.
You would be surprised to know how many people end up falling asleep during the middle of the procedure with this. If you believe your anxiety will still not be quelled, we can arrange to have you be put to sleep with a specialist to have the surgical procedure done. Once the implants are placed, you can't even tell that they are in the bone other than a little smooth healing hump that maybe barely sticking out from the gums.
We hope this small article can help to ease your anxiety and calm your mind so you can really focus on the incredible things we can accomplish with dental implants.
