Our implant surgeon will numb the area of the mouth having the implant and will then place the titanium post/s in the required areas (single/multiple implants depending on your case).
The appointment will usually take between one to two hours and will be painless due to the local anaesthetic. You will feel some mild discomfort when the implant is placed, but this will quickly pass and then the healing process will begin.
Depending on the treatment you have gone ahead with, either a temporary restoration will be fixed to your implants, or your final restoration (same day smiles). So when you leave you will not be left with a gap during the healing phase of the treatment.
Please note: Implant placements can be carried under sedation if you are a really nervous patient.
