Is the treatment painful?

As with any surgery, there can be some discomfort. Placing one implant normally causes less discomfort then placing several. Anesthesia and patient sedation are commonly administered to help reduce any discomfort during the dental implant process. Most patients report they were much more comfortable following the procedure than they had anticipated. Your doctor will prescribe medications to ease any discomfort that might occur after the surgery. Ask your dentist to recommend another patient who has already had tooth replacement dental implant therapy to assess their personal experience.
