The Dental Implant Procedure is Not Painful?
It may surprise you that, for many patients, dental implant procedures typically involve very little discomfort – even after the treatment is complete and the anesthesia has worn off. Designed to replace a missing tooth (or teeth) with results that look and feel natural, dental implants are essentially artificial tooth roots. Surgically placed into the area of missing teeth, the implants should fuse to the jawbone and become a permanent part of your mouth. Once this fusion is complete, a custom-designed dental crown will be affixed to the top of the implant. The result? New, beautifully-realized teeth created to look, feel, and function just like natural teeth.
Local anesthesia is typically all that’s necessary during a dental implant procedure to make sure you do not feel pain. Dr. Ronald J. Trevisani will prescribe medication after treatment that can be used to manage any slight discomfort caused by residual soreness and swelling in the treatment area. Every patient is unique, and one individual’s experiences with dental implant treatment will be different from someone else’s; however, for the most part, patients do not report significant pain from this procedure. Our board-certified oral surgeon is extensively experienced and skilled with dental implant procedures – in fact, they are the main focus of his entire practice. Dr. Trevisani invests in some of the latest technologies and utilizes advanced techniques to provide patients with successful treatment and the least amount of discomfort possible.
