Do Dental Implants hurt?
Dental Implants are easier than removing tooth out and are done using a simple local anaesthetic. You will not feel any pain at the time but, just like after an extraction, you may feel some discomfort during the week after the surgery. Usually the implanted teeth are fixed 3 to 4 months after the implants are put in. After that the bone in your jaw will grow onto them and fuse with them.
For long-lasting and successful implants, cleaning around the teeth attached to the implants is no more difficult than cleaning natural teeth. If you keep them clean and get them regularly checked then you should not have any problems. Smoking also affects the health of implants. So, if you smoke, you may need to look after your implants more carefully.
