The dental implant restoration process might seem time-consuming and complicated, but it is quick with a high success rate. The recovery time is also easy, with minimal side effects, meaning you can easily return to your routine quickly after the implant treatment. It is important to note that there isn’t a fixed time for the healing to take place. Each case is different, and everyone recovers on their own time. Dental Care of Burlington makes sure each patient understands the procedure and is aware of the risks. Our doctors, Dr. Kamand Shaibani and Dr. Thomas Rafferty, will guide you throughout the process and provide you with an aftercare plan to speed up the recovery process.

Does the Pain Last Long After the Dental Implant Procedure?


After the procedure, it is normal to feel pain and other symptoms for the initial few days. Many patients are concerned about the pain after the surgery, but depending on the procedure, the pain will start fading within a week or so.

Basic Implant Process


If you are getting one tooth replaced without grafting and your overall health is good, you will only experience minor discomfort for a week or so. There might be some swelling around the implant, which would last a few days. The dentist will prescribe pain medication to help you with any minor pain you might experience.

Complex Implant Surgery


The pain and discomfort might last longer if the procedure is complicated and requires multiple tooth replacements and grafting. The dentist will provide pain medication, and you will be on a soft foods-only diet for at least six weeks.

The Recovery Process for Dental Implants


The healing duration for implants generally varies depending on your dental and medical history, as well as the jawbone health before the procedure, the number of implants, and the requirement for gum or bone grafting.

Normally, the recovery takes a few days to two to four weeks, depending on individual cases. While it takes a few days or weeks to recover from the surgery, it takes around three to six months for the gum tissue and the jawbone to heal completely.

Factors Impacting the Recovery Time for Implants


There isn’t any standard recovery duration for implants, and there are some factors that can affect the recovery process. These might include:
•  Bone health
•  Requirement for bone grafting
•  Number of treatments and teeth extracted
•  Personal healing time
•  Lifestyle choices

The recovery time for dental implants is generally shorter than other types of surgery. Some patients fully recover within a week of the treatment. Following the aftercare tips and diet recommendations can help speed up the healing process and reduce the discomfort and pain from the procedure. The dental implant procedure is simple and highly successful. The dentists also create a strong recovery plan for each case to ensure quick healing. In rare cases, some patients experience complications. It is best to have an initial consultation with a dentist to determine whether or not this is the best option for you.
