Friendly Staff, Beautiful Smiles,
In general, the surgical placement of a dental implant is relatively painless. We often tell our patients that getting the tooth removed was the hard part, and putting the implant in will be easy. Local anesthetic to numb the area is usually all that is needed. Afterwards, most of our patients don't require more than other-the-counter pain medication, and often feel back to normal in less than 48 hours.
