Do Dental Implants Hurt??
As with most surgical procedures, getting a dental implant usually involves some discomfort after the anesthesia has worn off. But dental implant technology has come a long way in recent years, reducing the amount of pain associated with the procedure. Many patients are surprised with the speed of their recovery, and find they can return to normal activities the day after surgery.
Are Dental Implants Safe?
Oral and maxillofacial surgeons have been performing dental implants successfully since the 1970s. The procedure is considered safe for tooth replacement in patients who are generally healthy. As with any surgery, there are risks. But since you need to meet eligibility requirements to be considered for dental implants, problems are rare in people approved for the surgery.
