What is a dental implant? A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is placed into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth. They may be right for you if you lost your tooth or teeth due to periodontal disease, injury, or other reasons. The team at LuxeSmile Dentistry will work with you to figure out if an implant is the best course of action for you and your dental needs. The best part of implants is that they act, feel, and look like your natural teeth! Call today and find out if an implant could improve your life today!
Is the dental implant procedure painful?
The dental implant procedure itself does not cause pain, because you will receive either local or general anesthesia throughout the process. If you choose to have local anesthesia, you will remain awake while your mouth and jaw area are numbed. Because of the anesthesia, you will not feel any sensation or pain, although you will be aware of drilling sounds and pressure while the implants are being put into place. If the idea of sounds and pressure makes you nervous, you can ask the doctors about additional sedative options to help you relax, or you can consider having the procedure completed under general anesthesia. With general anesthesia, you will be asleep and unaware of any sensation, pressure, or sounds while your new dental implants are being placed.
As with any type of surgery, you should expect a certain amount of soreness after your anesthesia wears off and you begin the healing process. The exact location of possible discomfort will depend on where your implants are put, and your dentist will be able to explain more specifically what you can expect based on the details of your individualized procedure. Your dentist will also discuss possible painkillers and other steps that you can take to alleviate any discomfort – for example, Ibuprofen (aka Motrin) is commonly recommended.
Of course, if at any time you begin to have unusual pain, increased discomfort, or soreness that lasts longer than it should, contact Luxe Smile Dentistry immediately to confirm that you’re not experiencing complications with your implants and also to discuss additional pain relief options.
Most patients who receive implants report that their recovery was easier and less painful than expected and, more importantly, that the temporary discomfort was worth it when they experienced their final new smile and bite.
