Are Mini Dental Implants Painful?
In the following video, Brent Bradford, DDS, discusses how mini dental implants can replace missing or damaged teeth with minimal discomfort.
It’s perfectly normal to ask if receiving a mini dental implant is a painful experience. The reassuring answer is that it’s not. Mini implants cause significantly less discomfort than traditional implant procedures due to their minimally invasive nature.
Instead of using a scalpel to open the tissue, we create a small pilot hole directly where the implant will be placed. You may experience an ache similar to what you’d feel after any minor dental work.
For this, we typically recommend taking Tylenol the evening following the procedure. To help reduce any swelling, we provide a small ice pack to apply to the affected area. Most patients report back within a couple of days, often remarking that they only felt a slight ache on the night of the procedure and no pain thereafter.
We encourage you to get in touch with us for a free consultation. We’re eager to discuss your situation and explore how we can meet your needs.
