Dental implants: Is implant insertion painful?
It is difficult
to give a universally common answer to this query
due to the different levels of pain tolerance and
procedure complexity in itself. In a simple situation, for
example the insertion of a single implant without bone
grafting, the most part of the patients refer of a
slight post-surgery pain. Almost the entirety of patients
holds the extraction of a single tooth as being more
painful. In any case, during implant insertion there is no
sensation of pain, thanks to local anaesthetics.
