One of the main concerns of people thinking of getting dental implants to replace a missing tooth is whether they will undergo a painful procedure or not.

Admittedly, any form of dental surgery comes with some of discomfort. However, it won’t be long before you realise that the pain involved in getting your dental implants is rather insignificant, especially when compared to the outstanding results at the end.

What to Expect:

During the Implant Surgery: Dental implant surgeries are performed with anesthesia, either under sedation (which we offer) or local anaesthetic. Therefore, it is not a painful procedure, since you won’t be feeling anything from beginning to end. Throughout the procedure, you will have a sense of numbness in your mouth as the implant is surgically placed into your jawbone. However, if you have the slightest concerns about any potential discomfort during the procedure, you can always talk with your dentist about sedative options available that will make you feel more relaxed. Our team will also ensure that you are relaxed as much as possible.

After the surgery: You may experience some degree of discomfort after you have had your implants placed and the anesthetic has worn off. We will tell you the best pian killers that you can take to ease this discomfort. Our dentist may prescribe antibiotics if clinically indicated. Moreover, we will check up on you and you can pop down during clinic hours if you ghave any concerns. The majority of patients recover uneventfully.

Most patients feel that the pain after dental implant surgery is equivalent to that of getting a root canal or tooth-extraction. Finally, depending on where in your mouth you had an implant placed, you may feel pain reaching your chin, cheeks, or underneath your eyes. This pain will go away. Contact us if you have any issues.
