Is the dental implant procedure painful?

Your periodontist will use x-rays to pinpoint the ideal location for the implant.

Dental implants only require a small, shallow incision in the gum tissue – just enough to get the tiny implant through,local anesthetic, and the process is virtually pain free.

In the first step, the area is numbed, a tiny incision is created and the implant is carefully put in place. Lastly the implant is topped with a protective collar, temporary restoration or your new teeth. Many patients say that they never feel any discomfort, and others report mild soreness, comparable to a healing socket where a tooth has been extracted.
