Are dental implants painful?

Dental implants in Champaign, IL, replace missing teeth and support better oral health, and implant placement is not painful. We provide local anesthesia to anesthetize the treatment site. Additionally, you can talk to the dentist about sedation dentistry options if you feel anxious about your dental implant surgery.

A dental implant is a titanium post that replaces a lost tooth root. It is surgically implanted in the jawbone, where it fuses or integrates into the bone over time. After integration, we top your new tooth root with a dental crown. We can also use up to six implants to fit you with an implant-supported denture.

While implant placement isn’t painful, you may notice swelling and light pain for a few days following your surgery. Most patients find that Ibuprofen is sufficient to combat this pain. Capping your dental implant, however, is painless, and there are no aftereffects.
