Will I need General Anesthetics to Get Dental Implants?

Your questions about the need of general anesthetics to get dental implant will typically center on alleviating any pain during the procedure. If a dental implant is replaced with one or two teeth, you likely need a local anesthetic. But, when you have many missing teeth which needs to be replaced with dental implant then you may have to get conscious sedation or general anesthesia for utmost comfort.

Dental implant procedure can be quite extensive depending on the number of teeth that are replaced with dental implant. However dental implant procedure is relatively minor process, but placing a screw into your jaw bone would result in considerable amount of pain, yet dental implant treatment has come a long way. These days, patients with local anesthetic will feel normal in no time, nevertheless cases that involve multiple dental implants will require sedation for many days in order to recover.

There are several types of dental anesthetics available to help you get the utmost comfort that is required during the procedure. Here are few dental anesthetics for any dental procedures:
  • Laughing gas or Nitrous oxide: This type of anesthesia involves inhaling nitrous oxide, where the patient needs more relaxation beyond local anesthesia
  • Local anesthetics: This type of anesthesia is administered by injection, this is usually used while doing dental fillings or while doing dental extracts with general dentistry
  • General anesthesia: Involves the use of medication to place the patient into a deep sleep
  • Conscious sedation combined with local anesthetics: After local anesthetics, a patient receives medication that creates a drowsy and relaxed feeling

I visited Dr. Rostami last month, after seeing several dentists and receiving outrageous quotes and recommendations for extra work that I didn't feel I needed. Dr. Rostami knew exactly what my issue was and gave me a very reasonable good quote. She was very professional and made the process easy and painless! Thanks to the great staff for the wonderful experience." Sevda Az
