Under no circumstances should the fitting of implants be a painful procedure: it is performed with the patient under local anesthetic and, in some cases, via conscious intravenous sedation. The post-operative period is often very short in most cases: the patient must take a prophylactic antibiotic treatment for one week and analgesics for as long as required, which tends to be between 1 and 3 days after surgery. There can be slight inflammation of the face, although in most cases even this does not occur. In some more complex cases of surgery that involve bone grafts, there can be inflammation that last for days, but never pain.
To a large extent, whether the post-operative period is benign or not depends on the surgical care and the experience of the surgeon. The doctors at PerioCentrum employ microsurgical techniques that significantly reduce the length of post-operative period.
