No, getting dental implants is not painful, even if it is an invasive oral surgery.
When you get a dental implant, you can be sure that the first month or so is not going to be pleasant. After that, though, it should be smooth sailing. Dental implant complications are extremely rare, but they can occur. Tooth implant pain is even rarer. Some amount of pain is to be expected, seeing as this is an invasive oral surgical procedure, which will definitely involve drilling a hole in your jawbone and inserting a titanium screw into it. But after the body has accepted the dental implant, there should be no residual pain what so ever, maybe just a little soreness and some bruising.
Getting a dental implant requires an invasive surgery to be performed. After an invasive surgery, it is quite normal for certain parts of the body to be sore, hurt, to bleed and to be sensitive. This should subside after a while though, and your body should be returning to normal. If it does not, that means that there is a problem. Here are some guidelines to help you get through a difficult and confusing time.
I have a problem that is on again and off again, and I don’t know what to do with it. My teeth are sometimes very sensitive to warm foods and warmth in general makes them act up. They otherwise do not hurt, are totally,clean, not discolored at all, and are doing just fine.
“I have no visible caries, but my teeth can become extremely painful when I eat something hot or cold. Some spices, like chili also aggravates my teeth. This is only with my molars, but when I look at them I cannot see any problems, no chipping and no discoloration either. My tooth also becomes painful if it is cold outside and I go out from inside, or if my mouth dries out. But then it just goes back to normal. The tooth does not hurt if I touch it. Is there help? Do I just need to grin and bear it?”
“ I take care of my teeth very well, and I do not smoke or drink alcohol. I brush twice a day, floss once, and use mouthwash every time. I am noticing that there are cracks running up and down the enamel of my teeth. They do not hurt, and I am not experiencing problems, but I am noticing small lines running around the outside of my enamel. What is causing this? Is it cold or hot foods? I laos notice that my jaw is in pain more and more often. Am I lacking some vitamin?”
While there are relatively few risks that are associated with tooth whitening procedures, there are a few that must be mentioned. It is very rare for these occurrences to occur, and the chairside appointments should not result in any of the symptoms mentioned in these articles, as a trained medical professional, be s/he dentist or dental assistant or oral hygienist, needs to be present during the procedure and should be able to handle the situation without causing side effects. Take home kits also come with instructions that are easy to follow, and as long as the instructions are followed, there should be no problems.
