Is it possible if I can I have bone graft and teeth implants at the same time?

Is it possible if I can I have bone graft and teeth implants at the same time? Not only is it possible (with a few exceptions), but also recommended. As we like to practice a more conventional approach to implant placement, and reduce the amount of surgeries. If we are able to place the bone graft and implants this reduces Osseo integration periods, and helps give better initial stability to the implant itself. If extractions are needed, if you have severe bone loss, or if you have infection in this area then the possibility of placing the implants along with bone grafting may be questionable and a full x-ray and physical evaluation will be needed.

How Painful is it to get Dental Implants

How Painful is it to get Dental Implants Having Dental Implants Is Not a Painful Procedure. Dental implants should not be painful at all. If you are having a single implant placed most of our patients require only local anesthesia for the procedure, followed by an over the counter pain medication such as advil or tylenol and an antibiotic. In our patients who have larger surgeries (Full extractions, all on 4 procedures) we usually recommend an IV Sedation administered by a certified anesthesiologist. Afterwards the patient is given an icepack to help with inflamation, given an antibiotic and pain medication, and then scheduled for a check up a few days later. As with any surgery you can expect some soreness afterwards, however nothing that will leave you in bed all day.
