It is not without valid reasons, the count of patients choosing dental implants as the procedure for tooth replacement is rising rapidly. Being a life lasting solution to perfectly address the functionality and aesthetical requirements for replacing a missing natural tooth, dental implants easily outweighs all other available procedures. Ofcourse, the procedure demands cutting of gums, drilling in jawbones and insertion of post made out of Titanium metal surgically into the jawbone, and obviously few patients are apprehensive about the word ‘surgery’ associated with dental implants.
Having carried out numerous dental implants in Pune at our clinic, it is indeed our duty to present a clear picture about the involvement of pain in this procedure and thereby alleviate the fear of our patients.
Will it cause pain?
Firstly, it should be noted that akin to any other surgical procedure, very minor discomfort is expected during the course of recovery. But that being said, even these minor discomforts and pain causing symptoms are relieved using prescription medicines and proper post care treatment advises. Hence under no circumstances, pain will be a deterring factor for you to carry out your day to day activities assures a reputed orthodontist in Pune.
Strategies to mitigate pain
Before the surgery
Dental implants are not performed on the day one of your consultation. Infact, various aspects including the volume of bone are carefully analyzed prior to procedure. Moreover, with the help of diagnostic tests, necessary ground works are carried out to prepare a detailed surgical guide and arrive at a best possible outcome with least discomfort.
During the surgery
Dental implants are usually carried out with the assistance of local anesthesia to produce a numbing effect on the surgery sites in gums and jaws. While the surgery is being performed, the patients could hear the sound of tools and instrument being used but no sort of discomfort would be felt. Again, only if situation demands for any medical reason, the dental surgeon would go for general anesthesia with your prior consent.
Post surgery
As the surgery at our clinic would be conducted by a best dentist, Pune, you can set aside the fear of post surgery pain. As only very little portion of soft tissue and bone are disturbed during the procedure, nil or very minimal pain may be felt after the surgery. Ofcourse, with the help of anti-inflammatory medication and painkillers, the chances of pain is very much low. If necessary, to hasten the process of healing of gums, your dentist may also prescribe a full course of antibiotics.
Factors to be reckoned
Remember, no two individuals would feel or experience the same quantum of swelling or soreness as the outcome has strong dependence on expertise and skill sets of your orthodontist and also the complexity of surgery, which again is a strong function of several factors:
• Necessity of bone graft or sinus life procedures to facilitate dental implants
• Age
• Oral health conditions that includes jaw bones and gums
In a nutshell, we can categorically state that fear of pain should never be a criterion for choosing dental implants for replacing your missing teeth. If you would like to know more or ascertain your candidature for the procedure, please schedule an appointment and visit our orthodontist.
