Yes, but Will it Hurt?
The question of pain is forefront in the minds of every dental patient getting ready to experience something new. Will it hurt? If you were awake and unmedicated, yes, it would hurt. Luckily, you will never have to experience that kind of pain. At New Albany Implants, we combine excellent sedation techniques with extraordinary care to leave you completely pain free during your procedure.
That’s right! There won’t be any surprise pain or experiences wandering around in the back of your mind. When you enter our office for an implant procedure, we will take better care of you than you could ever imagine. We will begin with oral sedation. Once you’re feeling relaxed, we will administer IV sedation. Throughout the procedure, we will constantly check the IV sedation levels to ensure that you are completely comfortable and unaware of what’s going on.
What About When I Wake Up?
After your procedure is complete, we will wake you up. You’ll feel pretty groggy for a while, but that will wear off. Most of our patients experience very little pain following the procedure. What pain there is can be cared for with ibuprofen. Our patients can even return to work the following day! This is oral surgery, but it will not leave you laid up for days on end.
The best part is that once the pain from your procedure is gone, you will live the rest of your life in complete comfort! Dentures wouldn’t be able to make that promise because dentures cause a lot of dental pain. Implants will completely change your life, and we can’t wait to tell you all about it!
