Do dental implants hurt?

When it comes to tooth replacement, dental implants are the preferred method of most dentists. With implants, your tooth root and crown are restored, and dental implants are the only option available today that offer full anatomy restoration.

A dental implant in Huntsville, AL is an artificial tooth root made of durable materials that can integrate into human bone. When integration and healing are complete, your dentist tops your implant with a dental crown. If you have full or sporadic tooth loss, ask your Huntsville dentist about implant-supported dentures or bridges.

Dental implant placement is not painful because your dentist thoroughly anesthetizes the area before starting work. After the anesthesia wears off, you may notice mild swelling and discomfort, but this is short-lived and easily treatable with over-the-counter pain relievers.

When you receive your tooth crown, it is also not painful. And after a period of adjustment on your part, you may well forget that you have a dental implant.
