How Painful Is A Dental Implant Procedure?

Many patients believe that dental implants are accompanied by a certain amount of pain. However, this could not be further from the truth considering how dental implants have evolved over the course of the years. At the end of the day, the majority of patients will not feel any pain undergoing this procedure. The only thing that may occur is slight discomfort after the procedure.

Will I Get Any Pain During The Procedure?

Dental implants are placed under a local anaesthetic, so the patient will not feel a thing during the procedure itself. Patients who are extremely nervous about getting their dental implants may be offered additional sedation options to increase their level of comfort. Still, it is important to take into account that local anaesthetic is the safest way to have a procedure. General anaesthetic is usually accompanied with a little more risk than local anaesthetic. However, complications with general anaesthetic are quite rare.

What Kind Of Discomfort Can I Expect After Getting My Dental Implants?

After getting dental implants, patients may experience some light swelling. The amount of discomfort patients experience also depends on a number of denominators, including how long the procedure took and how gentle the soft tissue was handled. If the patient experiences any pain after the procedure, it can easily be handled with over the counter painkillers.

Once you have your new dental implants, it is essential to follow the instructions of your oral surgeon or dentist. By doing so, you can avoid any problems down the line. For example, it is recommended to quit smoking before you have your dental implants. Not doing so can slow the healing process and provide problems with dental implants down the line.

What If I Do Experience Pain After The Procedure?

Not many patients experience pain after getting their implants. However, should you experience a level of pain which seems unusual, you can always contact the Malo Clinic for a follow-up and advice.

When you get your dental implants at the Malo Clinic, you will also get good aftercare. In the rare occasion when you do experience some level of pain that should not be present after the procedure, you will get the opportunity to book in an emergency appointment.
