Do dental implants hurt? Is the dental implant procedure painful?

Many patients report that dental implants finally end the pain and discomfort that they have been experiencing with their missing teeth, damaged teeth, or dentures.

During the procedure itself, patients are sedated. Many patients report having no pain at all. After the procedure, patients may feel some discomfort and experience some swelling and bruising. This should resolve in a short time. Speak with your surgeon about any ongoing discomfort.
