About the Procedure
Most procedures may easily be completed over a short period in the chair. However major surgery may require a general anesthetic and recovery period.
After the Procedure
In most cases you will be able to see immediate results following the procedure with minimal recovery time varying from a few hours to a couple of days.
Although rare, all dental procedures may encounter complications. This may include:
– reaction to the anesthesia
– pain or tenderness
– temporary numbness or bleeding
In most cases you will be able to continue eating as your normally did within a few hours. In the case of a major procedure, such as implants or extraction, you may require a few days of recovery before retuning to regular life.
Cost for dental procedures varies depending on the type of procedure undertaken, however you can expect to save 50% or more compared to domestic dental.
