Do dental implants hurt?

dental implant elk grove village il The Dental Implant Process

Many patients wonder if the surgical placement of a dental implant hurts.  Dr. Advani will give you local anesthetic and make sure the area is very numb before starting the procedure.  Once the area is numb, no pain or sharpness will be felt.  There is only slight pressure that's felt during the procedure.  Most patients don't feel anything and don't even realize the implant has been placed when the procedure is over.

A Quick, Pain-Free Procedure

The entire procedure usually takes less than an hour and that includes the post-op instructions.  A prescription may be given after the procedure, but most patients typically only need over-the-counter Tylenol or Advil for the first 1-2 days after the procedure.
