In some situations, it is possible to place the implant immediately following the extraction of the tooth. This depends on a number of factors including: * Is there enough bone * Is there any infection present * The condition of the rest of the mouth and teeth The implant specialist will discuss this option with you before treatment and will advise what is preferred in your particular situation. In reality, often the decision can only really be decided once the tooth is removed and the area is inspected.

Dental Implant surgery can be performed using Local anasethetic only; and this can be pain free. However, if one is anxious, then there is an option of having oral sedatives (tablets) or IV sedation (through the vein in the hand or arm). These are the most common types used. Different countries will use different drugs.
