Does getting a dental implant hurt?

When performed by a trained and experienced dentist like Dr. Jon Skare at Wood Park Dental in in Eagan, MN, getting dental implants does not hurt. You may experience some soreness in the days following your procedure, but most patients report little to no discomfort. Many say that it's far more comfortable than having a tooth pulled.

Before we begin, we’ll numb the area so you don’t feel anything. Most patients don’t need sedation, but if you’re feeling anxious, Dr. Skare may be able to prescribe a sedative to help you relax.

Pre-planning placement of your dental implant using 3-D cone beam technology tells Dr. Skare exactly where and how to position your implant. The process is easy and efficient because there’s no guesswork, and we can ensure the best possible outcome.

After dental implant placement at Wood Park Dental, many of our patients return to work with no lingering discomfort. If you have sedation, however, you will need someone to drive you to and from your appointment, and you should plan to take it easy for the rest of the day.

If you’re looking for an experienced dental implants dentist in Eagan, MN, please call Wood Park Dental and schedule an appointment with at our 55122 office to get started.
