If you are particularly nervous about your procedure talk to our Norwich, CT general dentist about ways to ease your anxieties and make your surgery easier on you. While getting implants will require surgery the procedures are minor and all performed under local anesthesia so that you won’t feel anything during your treatment.

Of course, local anesthesia is a great way to thoroughly numb the area prior to your treatment. Once the area is numb then we can open up the gums and place your implant into the jawbone. After the implant is placed, over the next several months the implant begins to bond with the jawbone and become a sturdy foundation for your new restoration.

Of course, during your recovery period, you may experience some discomfort for a couple days afterward. This is to be expected but can easily be managed with over-the-counter or prescription pain relievers. You may also apply an ice pack to the side of your face to reduce pain and swelling. You will want to eat a soft diet for at least a week or two after surgery.
