FAQs - Dental Implants

Does the dental implant treatment hurt?

Dental ImplantsMost patients report that having a dental implant placed is easier than having a tooth extracted. Many patients will state that it feels like having a filling placed. There is some vibration and "drilling" sounds, but it is a very comfortable procedure.

Most patients will have some mild discomfort for a few days following dental implant placement, but usually nothing requiring more than Motrin or Tylenol. About 30% of patients will have some mild swelling for three to four days. Most patients are fine to return to work the following day and strenuous exercise in two days.

Dental implants offer a better solution to the problem of missing teeth!
