Did you know that August 15th is National Relaxation Day? It was set aside to help people remember the important role that relaxation plays in health, including the ways it can mitigate anxiety and stress. For this year’s relaxation day, Dr. Naran wants to help patients who might be headed toward a dental implant procedure to relax about the procedure. One of the best ways to relax and alleviate anxieties about dental procedures is to understand them better.
Easy Implantation With Local Anesthetic
While the term ‘dental implants’ can sound like something that is very complex and difficult, the fact is that the placement procedure is both popular and well-understood. That means that your dentist has plenty of practice with the process, and that the dental community does as well. This kind of popularity always helps procedures be less risky, since there is often a lot of innovation and refinement put in to the protocols for popular procedures.
Implants also require only local anesthetic in most circumstances, so you do not have to worry about being completely under anesthesia or about the complications and recovery times that general anesthetics introduce to procedures. That means you will be conscious throughout, and you’ll be able to go home immediately after the placement is completed.
Healing Times for Dental Implants
Your dentist can advise you more about the healing time for your implants, because the size and placement does make a difference. The fact that implants can be placed with just a local anesthetic does speed up healing, though, as does the fact that the process only produces minimal discomfort and swelling during the healing process.
