Are dental implants painful?

Missing teeth can cause your remaining teeth to shift, making speaking and eating difficult, and even lead to more tooth loss down the line. We do not want these things to happen to you!

At Northwest Arkansas Family Dental, we replace missing teeth in Fayetteville, AR regularly, and our new patients have been pleased and pleasantly surprised by how easy and painless tooth replacement can be, especially dental implants.

Our process for dental implants in Fayetteville, AR finds your dentist gently implanting a replacement root into your jawbone. This takes place only after the area is sufficiently numb. Our patients often compare implant placement to the same level of discomfort experienced with a dental filling—pressure but not pain, mild soreness for a few days but not a toothache.

If you experience anything other than mild soreness following implant placement, we encourage you to contact a member of our dental team.

A dental implant is a thin post of sturdy titanium that takes the place of your tooth’s root. It is surgically implanted in your jawbone. After several months, it bonds with your jawbone and is ready for a dental crown or replacement tooth.

If you would like to schedule a dental implant consultation, contact a helpful team member today.
