Dental Implant Surgery Performed with Sedation for Minimal Discomfort

Dentist in Irving, TX

Drs. Joshua and John Lee perform both dental implant surgery and, if necessary, any prerequisite procedures on-site at their office in Irving, TX. During this first phase of dental implant treatment, our doctors place small titanium posts into the jawbone, where they can integrate with the surrounding tissue and serve as artificial tooth roots for your choice of dental restoration.

At Kids and Grownups Dental in Irving, TX, we are committed to your comfort, health, and safety. That is why our doctors offer sedation during implant surgery. Combined with local anesthesia, this medication will virtually eliminate discomfort and anxiety.

Preparing for Dental Implants

Prior to surgery, Dr. Joshua Lee or Dr. John Lee will carefully evaluate your teeth and overall dental structure during a consultation at the office. Using a series of X-rays and 3-D images, they can then create a unique surgical plan to place your implants. Your dentist will consider the number of implants you require, the right positions for the posts, and the type of restorations that are best suited to your needs.

If you have suffered jawbone recession, you may need to undergo a procedure to catalyze new bone growth.

Once the small titanium post placed in your jaw has had time to fuse with the surrounding bone, the doctor can attach a restoration.

One of the most important parts of preparation are prerequisite surgeries such as bone grafting and sinus lifts. If you have suffered jawbone recession, you may need to undergo one of these procedures to catalyze new bone growth so that your implant posts have a sturdy foundation. In some cases, though, the doctor may be able to eliminate the need for bone grafting by identifying the strongest areas of your jaw and maximizing the healthy tissue that is available.

During this meeting, your practitioner will also explain what steps you can take before surgery to enhance your recovery. For example, patients should stop smoking at least two weeks prior to ensure that your body can heal to the best of its ability.
