Watch this video to learn more about the measures taken in our office to ensure minimal discomfort during your dental implant procedure.
Is the process of placing a dental implant painful? The answer is no. Nowadays, as most of 99% of cases can be done on the local anesthesia. If someone has a really low pain threshold, there are a number of options we can give him or her. Xanax or Ambien to make it relaxed. Not only mentally relaxes the patient, but also relaxes the muscles so when the mouth is open would not bother them.
In some cases, if needed, you can have it under I.V. sedation. We would be completely out. But what I’ve seen have been 90% or even 95% of the cases can be done under localized anesthesia in conjunction with some sort of maybe a tranquilizer such as Xanax or Ambien and so forth.
