Is Dental Implant Surgery Painful?

  • We use local anesthetic. In some cases additional sedation
  • Computer guided surgery insures incisions are kept to a minimum
  • Advanced laser energy automatically seals any blood vessels
  • Bone has no nerve

You will find that Dr Rahmani takes a great deal of care in ensuring dental implant surgery is as comfortable as possible. The area will be numbed using local anesthetic and additional sedation can be used if required. During implant surgery it is necessary to drill into the jawbone but this process is pain-free as bone has no nerve.

Normally, the most uncomfortable part of dental implants treatment is likely to be when the gum tissue is cut in order to expose the underlying bone.

Computer Guided Surgery

The use of computer guided surgery means incisions are kept to an absolute minimum as the pre-made stent allows for precise and faster treatment.

Using advanced laser dentistry helps reduce this discomfort even further, minimizing or eliminating bleeding as the laser energy automatically seals any blood vessels. Laser dentistry is extremely accurate and afterwards there is less swelling and recovery is faster.

Over-the-counter Painkillers

Afterwards, any discomfort should be easily controlled with over-the-counter painkillers such as ibuprofen which will help reduce any swelling. Often people are surprised to find they have no discomfort at all and anyone wishing to have a single dental implant will be perfectly fine to go back to work next day.

A tooth extraction may prove more uncomfortable than dental implant surgery in NYC.
