Yes, we offer sedation to patients undergoing implant surgery. This ensures a painless and relaxing experience, as well as helping ease any anxiety prior to your procedure.
Missing teeth make it difficult to properly eat your food, leading to digestive problems and nutritional deficiencies. After you lose a tooth, your jaw will also begin to shrink, which will cause your facial muscles to sag.
Implants are made out of biocompatiable titanium. We select this material because it fuses with the surrounding jawbone tissue to stimulate bone growth. This helps provide durability and stability to your implant, as well as helping to replace bone tissue that may have been damaged or lost.
Getting an implant involves a minor surgical procedure, during which your dentist will insert the implants into your jawbone. Some swelling, bleeding, and discomfort following the procedure are natural and will pass within a few days. Be sure to follow the post-operative care instructions we provide you with to ensure a comfortable recovery.
