Do implants hurt?

Implants require outpatient surgery to insert into your jaw, and you will experience some swelling and pain following your procedure. Be sure to take pain relievers as prescribed or recommended by your dentist to alleviate your discomfort. Once your mouth has healed, your implants will function comfortably and without pain, just like natural teeth.
