Post-implant pain

With the help of highly efficient anaesthesia, any type of surgical intervention may be performed painlessly and with enhanced comfort, which is necessary in these circumstances. Furthermore, inhalosedation increases calmness and relaxes the patient removing thus the most of the surgery-related discomfort.

If you observe the clinician’s instructions before and after the dental implant intervention, you will suffer no pain-related problems. It is also important to follow the treatment and the times to administer such medication if you want to recover fast and to avoid post-operative complications. The combination prescribed, i.e., antibiotic and anti-inflammatory and pain killers will lead to suffering no pain at all.

Do not wait for the onset of pain to decide whether you and bear it! The treatment for the pain should start before the onset of the pain.

When you feel that the numbness of the region under anaesthesia dissipates, you need to take the first painkiller. After the dental implant surgery, pain sets on immediately whenever the patient refuses the medication. Once the pain is there, surrender to treatment is more difficult.

Ice and cold compress applied on the cheek corresponding to the surgical region are beneficial. They need to be replaced periodically in order to keep the temperature low permanently. Thus, swelling is reduced and the onset of pain is less likely.

There is also treatment for gingival wounds. You will be prescribed a cicatrising gel (Gengigel) and a disinfectant one (Elugel) and you will have to use them for several days, even after complete healing of the wound. Gels will be applied with a clean finger directly onto the wound. Do not massage. These gels will be applied alternatively, at regular intervals.

It is recommended to avoid any kind of effort, practising sports, lifting weights as they may lead to local complication, hence the onset of pain.

To conclude, pain after implant placement surgery may occur if you do not follow clinician’s instructions. The good news is that in 95% of the cases where patients do follow clinician’s advice to the letter, there is no pain after dental implant placement surgery.
