Re: Help with implants please
I would say go for it. For years I went around with no back teeth. I finally got brave and had implants done. I also needed bone grafting; however the oral surgeon I used used a synthetic material of some sort which he inserted at the same time he put in the initial posts. I know it seems like a long time from start to finish, but to me, it was worth it in the end.
I had nothing but novacaine -- not even Valium or the like. There was very little discomfort. It was more the "noise" in my head that bothered me. The post-surgical pain was minimal -- more discomfort for a few days.
Good luck to you!
