Does dental implant surgery hurt?

At Glacier Peak Dentistry, we aim to make your dental visits and procedures as comfortable as possible. During a dental implant procedure, the nerves are numbed with medication so no pain is felt during the procedure. To help relieve general anxiety about the procedure we have other options such as oral conscious sedation or nitrous oxide, also known as “laughing gas”. At your initial consultation, we will discuss any and all options to help make your dental implant procedure go as smoothly as possible.

Mild swelling and discomfort may be present after the procedure but pain, if present, tends to be mild and short-lived depending on the number of implants placed. If pain persists or is more severe than expected, the team at Glacier Peak Dentistry wants to be notified as soon as possible so we can do what we can to ensure our patients’ comfort and health.
