How painful is implant surgery?

Most people are afraid of implants because of the pain they once had at the dentist. Implants are completely painless and non-traumatic. There are no nerve endings in the bone tissue. After local anesthesia, you will not feel anything but the pressure of the doctor’s fingers when he is placing the implant. In addition, the surgery to place a single implant lasts only about 30 minutes, and after it is completed, you can safely go home. I must say that the consequences of the surgery are also minimal. Swelling may appear for a few days, but the pain either does not appear at all or is very mild and can be easily treated with analgesics. The stitches are removed after 7 to 10 days.
