The dental implant placement procedure is performed in one visit but you will need to come back for a checkup and for the final implant restoration. If you end up needing a bone graft or other procedures before the placement procedure, you will need to plan for a few visits.
Dental implant surgery is performed in our office under IV sedation so most patients find it to be tolerable. Dr. Hanson and our team work hard to ensure patient comfort with any procedure and will walk you through the process so you know what to expect. Any post-op pain you experience is easy to manage with over-the-counter pain relievers and by placing an ice compress around the treated area.
