Does the Dental Implant Procedure Hurt?
While most of our patients are excited about the benefits dental implants can provide, some worry about the potential pain. Our cosmetic dentist Dr. Jeffrey Schultz is highly-trained in implantology, has a great deal of experience, and understands how to perform the dental implant procedure with the utmost precision, safety, and comfort. To help our dental implant candidates feel more comfortable about their upcoming surgery, Dr. Schultz uses the consultation as a time to review what to expect.
In order to minimize pain or discomfort during dental implant surgery, patients are first given a local anesthetic. This anesthetic keeps the area numb during the procedure and can help patients stay relaxed. During the recovery, oral medication can be used to easily manage any post-operative pain. Most importantly, before surgery, Dr. Schultz will make sure to answer any questions or concerns the patient may have so they can make an informed decision about their oral health.
