Is implant surgery painful?
Implant surgery is surprisingly not very painful. Usually, it is performed in the dentist chair under local anaesthetic. If you feel a little anxious about your procedure, we can happily give you more sedation or pain medication. Speak to your dentist about the various options we have available. After the procedure, you will be given care instructions, prophylactic antibiotics and pain relief to take home with you. You may experience some swelling and soreness over the next few days.
Many people have asked whether dental implant surgery is painful, so we’ve written a blog post on the subject on our sister site, DENTURES PLUS.

What can I eat after my surgery?
For the next three months after your surgery, only soft food is recommended (for example pasta, eggs or fish). Your dentist will discuss your diet with you and give you diet plans and suggestions to follow.
Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
