No. The procedure begins with your dentist making sure that you are numb in the area. A caring periodontist and the highest quality numbing agents will ensure your comfort throughout the entire surgery. Following the dental implant procedure, you may feel discomfort for two to three days. Thus, at the end of the procedure, your dentist will discuss which pain medication to take if needed.
Dr. Lee Hauer: Periodontist & Implant placement specialist
Our implant placement specialist, periodontist Dr. Lee Hauer, comes to the office each week to perform the highest quality implant surgeries. Dr. Hauer uses only the most technological equipment and has over 18 years of training and experience in implant dentistry. Dental implants are such a common procedure in our office that we are extremely familiar with all implant types. We personally prefer to use Nobel Biocare implants, as they are made from the highest quality materials and are extremely well researched and tested. Nobel Biocare even provides a Warranty on their implant parts, which is unique in the industry. Actually, patients often present to our office with old implants, nervous because they forgot the name of the implant system used. Due to our familiarity with all implant systems, we are able to figure out the company of the implant and address any of the patient’s concerns. If you live in the south Florida area and are considering dental implants, please feel free to schedule a complimentary evaluation in our office.
