Like many dental procedures, dental implant procedures are usually performed under local anesthetic—and our goal is to help you stay relaxed, comfortable and pain free throughout your appointments. In addition to local anesthetics, we offer conscious oral sedation or nitrous oxide as requested. Following your procedure, you may feel some pain or discomfort in your mouth and jaw. We can usually help you manage this with over-the-counter painkillers. We also provide dietary guidelines for you for throughout your healing process.
