Will be having my first dental implant for my lower right first molar in about 4 to 5 months.

Will appreciate it if anyone can share their experience if they ever had a dental implant.

Does it hurt badly after the anesthesia wear off? To think of a screw in the jawbone sounds painful.

Any brushing/mouthwash/waterpik allow in the first few days?

Will there be alot of bleeding?

I had 4 dental implants on my 4 molars. Nothing to worry about. No bleeding. The most painful thing was tooth extraction.

I have had 5 over several years, and never had any problems with severe pain. Each time the dentist gave me a prescription for a potent pain killer, but I managed with just Tylenol. The pain for me was from the extractions and the bone grafts, just dull aches when the anesthetic wore off. There was no bleeding, however no brushing for two days, then only soft bristles. Of course your results may not be the same, people have different tolerances for pain, dentists may not all handle implants exactly the same, and of course there is always a chance of a complication. Good luck, hopefully yours will go as smoothly as mine have.

Agreed! I had trouble with the extractions. Implants were great.

I've had 2 implants and they were a piece of cake. Especially compared the extractions. They sound like they would be horribly painful. They're drilling down into your bone, but it really was not painful. The most painful part was the cost. ha ha

Dental implants are not painful, after the anesthesia wears off you can experience some discomfort but in 2 or three days you feel normal or i say better than before because dental implant is like just as a new teeth.

Hell fitting the actual implant after your bone heals is worst then getting the post drilled in your bone.

I've had 5 implants over the last 15 years and my experience is similar. Pricey but well worth it and very little discomfort after the anaesthetic wore off. One dose of OTC pain meds was enough.

I have had 2 implants and they were a piece of cake. I'm on high blood pressure medication and the only bleeding was from the extractions.
After the implant was put in I was given a very soft bristle brush to use in the implant area. Otherwise, brushing is normal.
