Do dental implants hurt?
Dental implants are not uncomfortable during the surgery or recovery process because bone does not have nerves. When we place dental implants, we make sure our patients are completely numb for the procedure. Though we need to go through your gums in order to place your dental implant, you will feel no more discomfort during the process or healing than any other dental procedure and your results will be worth it!
As your gums heal, you may have some sensitivity, but your mouth heals quickly and you will feel improvement in a short period of time. Most patients report no complications when recovering from surgery.
Dental implants are one of the most convenient and successful ways to replace missing teeth. Because they mimic your natural teeth, all the way to the root, they are a stable way to complete your smile and restore your bite. They are easy to care for because you can brush and floss normally.
