Do you have a low tolerance for pain? Are you scared to correct your teeth because of the pain that may come from it? Have you heard horror stories about the pain that comes from dental implants?

Well, everyone’s experience is different. You may or may not experience pain when it comes to dental implants. A dentist in Omaha, NE is more than happy to assist you with letting you know what the experience will be like when you get dental implants.


What Should You Expect While Getting Dental Implants?

When you are having dental implantation surgery, it is usually done under local anesthesia, sedation, or general anesthesia which means you shouldn’t feel any pain during the dental implant surgery.

With recovery, there could be some pain and or discomfort and can last a few days, but it is often cured with using medication. If you have pain that lasts more than a few days and/or the pain gets worse, your team of dental professionals will be able to instruct you on the best plan to take. Post-surgical pain symptoms following dental implant surgery included:

  • Surgery site bleeding
  • Face and gum swelling
  • Minor bruising
  • Pain in the jaw

A proper after care routine will be given to you by the oral surgeon once the dental implant surgery is complete which will include but not be limited to:

  • Pain medications like over the counter or prescription
  • Try to avoid hot or hard foods as much as possible
  • Reduce swelling with ice packs
  • Depending on how you feel, rest the day of the procedure and maybe a few days after
  • Surgical care site instructions

Improving Your Smile

Many Americans experience tooth loss or injury, which, if left untreated, can lead to atrophy or weakening of the jaw muscles. Dental implants can correct this issue AND provide you with a beautiful new smile. Since dental implants also mimic the look of natural teeth, you can rest assured that they will give you a great look.

Additional advantages of dental implants are:

Enhanced Appearance:

They look and feel like your own teeth. They also become permanent.

Better Speech:

Your teeth don’t slip, causing you to mumble or slur your words

Easier Eating:

Dental implants are made to make it easier for you to ear. With regular dentures you have to worry about them sliding and making chewing very difficult. With dental implants functioning like your own teeth you are allowed to eat your favorite foods without pain and confidence.

Increased Durability:

The dental implants can last a lifetime with good care.

More Convenience:

Removable dentures are just that, they come out. Dental implants eliminates the inconvenience of removing dentures and no messy adhesives because the implants fuse to your bone.
