A dental implant is an artificial tooth replacement. Since they attach directly to the jawbone, implants look and feel like real teeth, and they may prevent bone loss and gum recession at the same time.
Will I experience pain or discomfort?
Usually minimal to none. While undergoing treatment, you will receive local anaesthesia. You may have mild post-surgical soreness for up to 72 hours. Over-the-counter pain relief is generally sufficient to alleviate the discomfort in most patients. Special care will be taken to stay in contact with you after the surgery to be sure that you remain comfortable.
When can I return to work after implant surgery?
It’s a personal choice; however it is possible to return to work the next day after the procedure. Our surgeon will discuss this with you during your consultation.
