Our team makes sure you feel comfortable before, during, and after your treatment and guides you through all the aftercare steps. 

  • Your dentist will apply local anesthesia to your mouth before starting any dental implant procedure which will numb the area. The procedure will start only after the mouth is numb
  • For complicated cases, the patient may be placed under general anesthesia if the procedure has more steps or will take longer than normal.
  • Once the dental implant surgery has been done correctly with the proper fitting implant, pain and discomfort will be limited.
  • Your dentist will provide pain relievers if necessary as well as instructions on proper diet and dental hygiene for the next few days to weeks.
