Do Dental Implants Hurt?


Do Dental Implants Hurt?

During the dental implant procedure, you’ll be under anesthesia, so you shouldn’t feel any pain. Afterward, some discomfort and swelling are normal, but you can usually manage this with over-the-counter pain medication. Overall, any pain or discomfort from dental implants is usually temporary and not severe. If you’re worried about pain during or after the procedure, talk to your dentist or oral surgeon.

At Lorton Springfield Mt. Vernon Dental Implant & Oral Surgery we have multiple anesthesia options including:

  • Local Anesthesia
  • Oral Premedication
  • Nitrous Oxide
  • Intravenous Sedation
  • General Anesthesia

How Long Do Dental Implants Hurt?

After a dental implant procedure, you may experience some discomfort, swelling, and bruising around the implant site, which can be managed with pain medication and ice packs. Bleeding from the implant site is normal and should subside within a few days. During the initial healing process, it’s essential to eat soft foods and avoid chewing on the implant site to prevent irritation. Following your dentist’s or oral surgeon’s instructions for oral hygiene is crucial to prevent infection and promote healing.

Dr. Michael Jungwirth performed oral surgery on me recently. He was professional, attentive, and caring as he explained the entire procedure. I did not feel any pain during the surgery and healed well. He is a gifted surgeon! The staff at the Mount Vernon office is excellent, very friendly and communicative. I highly recommend this oral surgery practice.
