The truth is, procedures like dental implants are far less painful than people think. Many
patients who have undergone implant placement are surprised at how relatively painless the
procedure is and how effectively it can restore their mouth to full function.
Having dental implants does require a minor surgery which is usually done under local
anesthesia or IV sedation. After the procedure, once the numbness wears off, during the
healing period, mild discomfort around the gums may be noticed for a few days. Normally over
the counter pain medications manage the discomfort very well. Patients generally report
feeling very little discomfort during the process and often say the pain is less than they had
