Do Dental Implants in Downey Hurt?
During dental implant surgery, our patients are sedated, so they do not feel anything during the procedure itself. Once the surgery is complete and anesthesia wears off, there will likely be some soreness. Some people also experience some swelling post-surgery.
Ice packs and over-the-counter anti-inflammatory medications (if you are medically able to take them) can help. You can expect any discomfort to dissipate within a week or two of surgery.
Are Dental Implants Safe?
Dentists have successfully and safely used implants for decades. Researchers have studied which metals are biocompatible so that the implants can properly integrate into the bone without causing any adverse reactions.
Of course, some patients are allergic to certain metals. If this is the case for you, talk to your Downey dentist about your implant options.
