Does Dental Implant Surgery Hurt?
Dental implant surgery is not painful. The pain is minimal compared to the pain you feel when you have a toothache.
At Silver Oaks Dental Clinic our main aim is to make patients feel relaxed and have a painless treatment.
With new technology Dental Implants have become faster, easier and much more straightforward. If you are considering replacing missing or damaged teeth but are concerned about the pain afterwards. You must not fear! Most patients will tell you that the pain is minimal.
The biggest benefit is getting permanent teeth and you are able to chew and smile with confidence again.
The other huge benefit to Dental Implants is that there is very little maintenance as is the case with dentures. With dental implants in this new era you heal faster than in the past and the majority of our patients are surprised at how little pain they feel.
If the procedure is complex you might get some soreness or inflammation but that can be managed with the proper painkillers. We have found it to be very uncommon for a patient to require a Narcotic type medication after placement of a Dental Implant.
Will there be pain during the Dental Implant procedure?
The main procedure is normally carried out under local anesthetic or if you like conscious sedation as an option that can be carried out as well. Both procedures will numb your mouth and jaw. So there won’t be any pain during the procedure.
You are welcome to chat to Dr Roy Huson about your concerns and he will be happy to advise you on the various procedures.
Will there be pain after the Dental Implant Surgery?
You will get some discomfort after Dental Implant surgery. It is an operation after all. The pain is minimal and you will be getting pain killers so that you won’t feel pain. Most people go back to work the next day after dental implants so it is in no way a hectic procedure.
Again the biggest benefit in the long term is being able to smile and chew with confidence. You will need to take some painkillers and get an ice pack and gently put it on your face to reduce swelling. You will also need to eat soft foods for the next few days.
