The Day of Your Surgery: What You Can Expect
When You Arrive At Our Office…
We will begin by giving you a warm blanket as we make you comfortable in our operating suite. In most cases, IV sedation and local anesthesia are administered to the patient by one of our trained staff prior to the surgical procedure.
The Surgical Procedure…
If you have chosen to be sedated for this appointment, Dr. Neshat will start your IV in addition delivering the local anesthetic.
First, a small incision will be made into the gum tissue to expose the underlying area where the implant will be placed.
Then, using special dental implant tools, Dr. Neshat will create a space for the implant to be inserted into.
In most cases, a healing cap is placed on top of the implant.
Sutures are used to ensure the tissue heals properly around the implant.
