Dental Implant Pain Management
At Country Club Dentistry in Rancho Mirage, California, we take steps to minimize pain and discomfort during the dental implant process. Our experienced implant dentist, Dr. Rod Strober, uses a combination of local anesthetics such as Novocain to numb the treatment area and sedation pills to help patients relax.
After the dental implant procedure, it is common for patients to experience some level of discomfort or pain. This may include soreness at the implant site, swelling, and sensitivity to temperature changes. Pain after the procedure can typically be managed with over-the-counter pain medications, such as ibuprofen.
In some cases, patients may experience more significant pain after the procedure. This may be due to complications, such as infection or nerve damage. It is important for patients to contact their dentist if they experience severe pain after the procedure or if their pain persists for an extended period of time.
