Type of Anesthesia for Dental Implant Surgery?

Last Updated July 07, 2008
Reviewed By:  Dr. Gerald Rudick

L., a dental implant patient, asks:
Do I need general anesthesia for one implant for front tooth #9 [maxillary left central incisor]? A lot of people I spoke with just had local anesthesia and they were fine and did not feel anything. Don’t know why this oral surgeon wants to use general anesthesia for my one tooth implant. I am concerned about the dangers of general anesthesia which the oral surgeon has downplayed. What should I do? Do I need it?
