Local anaesthetic at our surgery ensures that the implant placement procedure is comfortable. A general anaesthetic in hospital is available should you wish and may be the best option for more complex cases.
Initial post-operative discomfort can be considerable and is best managed with some strong oral pain relief. Substantial improvement usually occurs the following day and can usually be managed by more mild oral painkillers.
Some bleeding, bruising and swelling should also be expected but is usually minor. Multiple implants are usually more uncomfortable than single implants and sites where grafting has occurred are often more uncomfortable.
