ANSWER: The process of placing dental implants is considered minor surgery. The patient will be given an ample dose of local anesthetic or may receive IV Sedation to avoid any discomfort during the surgery. Following the procedure, the patient can expect to experience some moderate discomfort due to the sutures in the gum as well as the natural healing process for up to a week. This discomfort is most often controlled through the use of various over-the-counter pain medications and/or a medication prescribed by your dentist.
