I was injection numbed up by the dentist to put on the implant abutment. Will I be injected again a second time when he puts on the 2 implant crowns?

1 doctor agrees

In brief: No

The healing abutment protrudes from the gingival tissue.
It allows your dentist easy access to the implant without having to make an incision.
