Tooth Implant

I am having a tooth implant (screw placement) next week. The oral surgeon said I can have a local or be put out. He said about 50% choose one and 50% choose the other. Not much help! I have had crowns and a root canal and did fine being awake. If you have had a tooth implant, what did you do? Thanks!

Dh has two screw implants and he says he just had local anesthesia, and it was fine.

Good luck with the procedure!

I was awake and it went fine! Some weird noises and if I remember correctly, lots of water and some pressure during the drilling, but no pain. Good luck!

I wasnít given the choice; I had local anesthesia and was just fine. It felt kind of weird but no pain. Good luck with your procedure.

I had local anesthesia when I had my screw placement implant last year. I didn't have any discomfort, and all went well.

I have two implants and had local both times. There was mild discomfort, but it really wasn't bad. Unless there's a special reason, local is definitely the way to go.
