What Types Of Anesthesia Is Required For Dental Implant Surgery?
Our doctors see many people each year who are interested in getting dental implants placed, whether due to missing teeth or simply because they want to replace old, outdated tooth replacement options like dentures and bridges. Because dental implants rise to the top of the list of popular choices among dentists, many people want to get them done. However, one of the biggest concerns that our doctors hear from their Bangalore patients is regarding how painful the dental implant procedure might be. To ensure that our patients feel as relaxed as possible during their treatment, we utilize sedation dentistry. Read on to find out more about what kind of anesthesia can be used for your dental implants.
Anesthesia For Dental Implants
Some of the top priority of our doctors are the safe and comfortable of each of their dental patient. That’s the reason they use anesthesia when placing implants. However, not every dental procedure is the same, and what type of anesthesia used will vary depending on the needs of each particular patient. Tooth implants can either be placed under general anesthesia (where patient is completely unconscious), or with light sedation along with local anesthesia (where patient is drowsy but still somewhat aware).
For most patients, we usually recommend local anesthesia for single implants. However, if you want to avoid any discomfort, we may suggest general anesthesia instead.
On one hand, some patients need more sedation for extensive procedures. For example, if they want to place implants in both sides of their mouth at once, they may need more than just local anesthesia. However, some patients prefer not to feel any pain during the procedure. If that’s the case, then they might choose general anesthesia.
Another option our doctors offer their patient is twilight sedation combined with local anesthetic. It’s a good choice for people who need moderate dental implants. This helps them benefit from the local anesthesia, but keeps them somewhat unconscious so they don’t feel anything.
