Patient Information FAQ’s
Coverage of dental implant surgery can depend on whether medical insurance, dental insurance or both could apply to the procedure. Just how much an insurance plan covers can depend on your insurance provider and plan coverage details. Patients should always have discussions about insurance coverage with their oral and maxillofacial surgeon (OMS).
If you have qualms about being under anesthesia during a procedure, discuss your other options with your oral surgeon. It may be possible to only use a local anesthetic to numb the area instead of general anesthesia. The opposite is also true – if you would prefer to be sedated during your procedure, ask your surgeon if this is an option.
Your oral surgery team will give you the exact anesthetics to either completely numb the area or sedate you during your surgery. If you’re worried about pain during the procedure, discuss your anesthesia preferences and needs with your oral surgeon ahead of time.
