Most people considering dental implant surgery also think about how much it might hurt. The truth is that you will experience some pain or discomfort, though it wonâ€™t be debilitating and there are many approaches to increasing comfort levels during healing.
The number of implants and the extent of the surgery are the primary factors. Still, each individual reacts differently to the same procedure.
During the implant procedure, youâ€™ll have the benefit of anesthesia, which will last from 2 to 4 hours beyond the dental surgery. Once that wears off, youâ€™ll most likely experience soreness or tenderness at the implant site lasting as long as 10 days to 2 weeksâ€”thatâ€™s completely normal.
The more extensive the procedure, the more likely you are to smart a little.
