Like many dental procedures, dental implants are surgical procedures performed under a local anesthetic—and our goal is to help you stay pain free, relaxed, and comfortable. In addition to the local anesthetic, various levels of conscious sedation or nitrous oxide are also available, as desired.  Following your procedure, you may experience some pain in your mouth and jaw and we can help you manage this most often with over-the-counter painkillers. We will also provide dietary guidelines during your healing process.
