Does Getting a Dental Implant Hurt?

Watch this video to learn more about receiving a dental implant and any potential discomfort you may experience.

Some people want to know if it hurts to get an implant placed. And with the mini implants there is very little discomfort, if any. We numb the area as if we were just doing a filling and you basically don’t feel anything there. They’re non-surgical, so there’s no surgery involved. It literally takes about 10 minutes to place one of these mini implants.

We do prescribe an antibiotic just in case, you know, prophylactically. But most of the time you just take what you would take for a headache. When you leave and I’ve had almost zero complaints about anybody having any pain while an implant was placed.
