In dentistry, pain is a rather inevitable perception that often plagues both the care provider and receiver. Pain, which was described by Rene Descartes in the sixteenth century, has been defined as an unpleasant sensory and emotional experience associated with tissue damage or described in terms of such damage. Various dental procedures also provoke a perception of anxiety that culminates with pain and exaggerates the perception of pain. Hence, adequate pain control and assurance are of utmost importance during and following implant surgery.
