If a person needs dental implants they may be worried that they will hurt. When the dentist is putting the implants into the bone a person will be under local anesthesia so they will not feel pain. If a person is very nervous they can get a sedative or they may be put under so they will not know what the dentist is doing. Some people have reported a feeling of discomfort but it was still tolerable. Once any anesthesia that was used during the procedure wears off a person may feel some soreness. This is normal and should be expected. The more complex the surgery is and the longer it takes it is more likely for a person to feel discomfort when the numbing agent wears off. A person may also experience some swelling or bruising to the gums right after their procedures but it will wear off within a couple of days and a person will no longer experience pain or discomfort.
