Dental implants seem painful. Do they hurt?

 

Dental Implants are Routine and Comfortable

One of the biggest misconceptions about dental implants is that they are an invasive, painful procedure...that's not the case at all! The placement of dental implants is a routine, comfortable experience that can be done with local anesthetic very much like a filling or crown. With any procedure at Tiger Family Dental, it is our priority to make it a comfortable, pain-free experience, and dental implants are no exception. Dental implant appointments are typically less than one hour in length, and minimal to no pain.

Minimal discomfort after the procedure is common, but over the counter anti-inflammatories (Ibuprofen, Aleve) will help with any discomfort that may occur. Resorbable sutures are commonly placed following implant placement, they will not require another appointment as they will fall out on their own in typically 2-5 days.
