Dental Implant Procedure Expectations

If you are receiving dental implants in the near future, Dr. Dipika Shah, DDS wants you to understand and relax. She wants you to be informed on what to expect. Pain is a common concern among individuals who are considering dental implants and our staff want you to know that while some discomfort is expected, it should not be your primary concern.

As with any major dental procedure, or surgery in general, some discomfort is to be expected during the recovery process since it is a surgery that typically involves  inserting a titanium post in your jaw bone that acts like a root of your tooth to support the crown. The procedure itself is not painful since the surgical area will be numb.  If you’re anxious about the discomfort during the procedure, we have electrical handpiece that does not make noise or vibrate to avoid noise, we have nice massagng chairs and please ask about our sedation options.

If you have further questions regarding your oral hygiene routine, please give us a call. To learn more about the services we provide at the practice, visit for more information. To schedule an appointment with Dr. Dipika Shah DDS, here in our Holmdel, NJ office, call 732-264-8180.
