Will I be in pain after getting a dental implant?

While getting a dental implant is a surgical procedure, the good news is the vast majority of patients have only minimal discomfort after it is placed. During your implant placement the only thing you should feel is a little bit of pressure as we create the hole for your implant. Once the implant is in place we suture the area and place gauze over it to make sure the incision does not bleed. 

Post-operatively we typically recommend 600mg of ibuprofen every 6 hours. Patients with more discomfort can alternate the ibuprofen with 500mg of tylenol every 3 hours. If for some reason you are unable to take ibuprofen or tylenol we will discuss what other options are available for pain management. The good news is that most patients feel back to their normal selves in about 2 days!

The past few months have been challenging for everyone; we are looking forward to a return to a new type of normalcy. We have officially been given the green light to re-open, and plan to resume seeing patients on June 11th. While I have cherished the extra time with my husband and 9 month old, I have missed my patients and doing what I love each day.

Over the past three months, I have spent long hours researching how to best prepare our office for a safe reopening. My number one priority is ensuring the health and safety of our patients and staff. I’d like to share some of our strategies for keeping our office clean and safe for all.
