It is quite common for people considering dental implant surgery to be uneasy about the surgical procedure. If you find yourself nervous about the thought of the dental implant process, or are experiencing anxiety about your upcoming appointment, here are a few reasons you can rest easy about the process.
Dental Implant surgery is a refined science and the procedure is carefully planned
With the help of our state-of-the-art 3D Conebeam CT scanner, Dr. Martin and Dr. Appelblatt are able to make a detailed, highly-accurate map of your mouth and carefully plan the entire implant procedure, before surgery even begins. The result is a clean, precise, minor surgical procedure with minimal discomfort.
The implant process is typically easier and less painful than a tooth extraction
Tooth extraction is a painful process. In contrast, the implant procedure is fast and clean. In many cases, implants can be placed during the same visit as the extraction, and require only local anesthesia.
Thanks to modern equipment and techniques, there is minimal disruption and discomfort
Modern implant equipment and techniques allow for a highly-refined process, resulting in minimal discomfort for the patient. In most cases, a mild anti-inflammatory, such as ibuprofen, is all that is needed after surgery to mitigate discomfort and minimize swelling and bleeding.
Success rates are extremely high
The success rate of the modern dental implant procedure, when performed by a qualified doctor such as Dr. Appelblatt or Dr. Martin, is close to 97%. With this extremely-high rate of success and the highest level of care you will receive at Tahoe Oral Surgery and Implant Center, you can rest assured that your choice to undergo the implant procedure is the right one. Once your implant and crown are complete, you’ll be enjoying a full-functional, natural-looking set of teeth for years to come.
