Anxiety and fear are normal feelings towards dental treatment but at Miami Designer Smiles, we want you to know that you do not have to feel this way. Many patients can tolerate seemingly minor dental procedures, but when it comes to something more invasive, the nervousness begins. A dental implant procedure may seem scary but, there is nothing to worry about, and here is why.

Before your dental implant procedure begins, the entire treatment process is thoroughly planned and mapped out. The doctors at Miami Designer Smiles use state of the art technology to ensure precise placement of your dental implant. There is also an opportunity for you to ask any questions or bring forth concerns you may have about your treatment.

At Miami Designer Smiles, we place your dental implant on site, so there is no need for you to visit another dentist or oral surgeon during the implant process like some dental offices require. If you have made the decision to get a dental implant, understand that the worst part of the process is already over! Honestly, getting the implant is easier than a tooth extraction. We use local anesthesia to ensure the site is numb, and so that you do not feel any pain during the process.

Following the implant procedure, you may experience minimal discomfort, if any. In fact, most patients only experience the tenderness of gum tissue, surrounding the dental implant. An over-the-counter anti-inflammatory (NSAID) can easily get rid of any discomfort you may experience. You will be able to resume your normal activities as soon as you leave the office.

For patients who may still have feelings of apprehension, Miami Designer Smiles also offers conscious sedation, to help make your dental implant procedure easier on your nerves. If you are interested in conscious sedation as part of your treatment plan, just ask the doctors about this option before your procedure.
