Do I have to have a general anesthetic to have dental implants?

Most dental implants can be placed in the dental chair under a local anesthetic - the same numbing injection you would have for routine fillings. If you are having several implants placed at once, or there is a need to place artificial bone around the implant, then your dentist may recommend sedation in the dental clinic, or a general anesthetic in a hospital setting. There are many options that can be tailored to your needs.
