Dental implants and pain--Man from Wheaton reports
Posted Mar 29 2010 6:09am
So what is it like to have a dental implant placed? This short video shows a man from Wheaton describing how it was to have the dental implant surgically placed, ant the subsequent crown placed.
His dental implants were placed using the more modern “flapless” approach, vs. the older method where the gums had to be “pulled back” to place the dental implants. Most patients report that they “just took a couple of asprin that night,” or “their dental implants were painless.” Better methods of pain control and surgical technique have greatly diminished pain and discomfort in dental implant surgery. This case was for a single dental implant crown to avoid having a dental bridge. More involved cases now utilize complex CT scans and imaging software to use this “flapless” approach.
