Does Getting an Implant Denture Hurt?

In this video, Dr. Chris Powell addresses concerns about pain with implant-supported dentures, explaining that most patients manage discomfort with over-the-counter analgesics.

Many people express concern about the potential pain associated with getting an implant-supported denture. However, the procedure is generally well-tolerated. Most patients find that taking ibuprofen is sufficient to manage any discomfort following the placement of the implants. On occasion, some may require narcotics, but this is less common. The procedure for implant-supported dentures is relatively simple and less invasive compared to other dental procedures. It is also more cost-effective. Moreover, the discomfort associated with the procedure is typically minimal. Once completed, implant-supported dentures significantly improve your ability to eat and chew comfortably, enhancing your overall quality of life.
