Many of our patients have said that dental implants feel better than an extraction – pain wise!
In order to understand how painful the implant process may be, it is helpful to realise what happens when a patient receives an implant. In many cases, after a patient has a natural tooth extracted, the area is prepared with a bone graft. These grafts encourage the production of new bone, which will strengthen the jawbone and help ensure the implant properly integrates with the bone.
Many dental professionals provide pain medication to help manage discomfort at the implant site. In some cases, post-surgery pain is mild enough that it can be managed with over-the-counter pain medication. Generally, a single implant will cause less discomfort than a surgery where multiple implants are placed. Patients will usually have pain up to 10 days after the procedure, but the pain may resolve before 10 days.
An appointment one week after your implant is placed will be booked to assess the surgical site and address any of the patient’s concerns post procedure.
After 3-4 months, a crown is placed on top of the implant. This 3-4 months is the healing period and allows your gums and jaw to get used to the implant being embedded there. The crown acts just like your natural tooth.
