Does dental implant surgery hurt?
When performed by a dentist who is specially trained in implant surgery, having a dental implant placed is similar to having a tooth pulled.
With modern sedation options, we can keep you comfortable throughout the procedure.
Dr. Leung has placed many implants, and our patients tell us that it was much easier than they expected. A gentle touch, caring team, and sedation dentistry can make all the difference when it comes to a procedure like dental implant placement.
How will sedation dentistry help?
We can provide nitrous oxide sedation, which is usually sufficient for the majority of patients. Nitrous oxide does not put you to sleep, but it does induce a relaxed, dreamy state. You will be awake, but your senses will be dulled to the sights and sounds around you.
What if I have anxiety?
Dr. Leung is also qualified to prescribe a calming medication if you have greater anxiety. You will take the medication when you arrive at our office for your appointment. By the time you’re ready for your procedure, you will be very calm. This is especially effective when combined with nitrous oxide sedation.
