Abstract

Implants are the most preferred choice of treatment options for replacement of missing tooth or teeth for all age groups. Excellent long term survival rates make it a viable option for both simple and complex dental rehabilitations. Involvement of a surgical procedure for implants makes the patient anxious and develops a rejection towards the procedure. Research has shown anxiety to play a role in pain perception prior to surgical procedure. This study analyses the role of pain perception to actual pain experienced by subjects undergoing elective dental implant procedure and the role of age and gender in this assessment using a modified visual analog scale.
