Is the dental implant procedure painful?

23 May 2019

Dental implants involve a minor surgical procedure that requires an incision in the gum. Pedro generally performs this under local anaesthesia, the least amount of medication necessary for you to feel comfortable throughout. You do have the option of being sedated beforehand if you’re feeling anxious.

The area only takes a few days to heal. During this time, you may feel some minor discomfort. Pain medication such as paracetamol or ibuprofen can be taken, but it shouldn’t be necessary for any longer than two to five days afterward.
