It's normal to experience some level of pain around the implant surgery site. Swelling and bruising are also common side effects of the procedure. You can use OTC pain medication and cold compresses to alleviate some of your discomfort.
Minor bleeding from the implant site is also normal. Your Houston dentist will tell you how to deal with it if it occurs.
As the anesthesia starts to wear off, you may notice another stranger sensation, like a tightness in your mouth. It may almost feel as if your implant is shifting. This is also normal and the sensation usually disappears as you become accustomed to the implant.
Remember, if you experience any severe pain, significant bleeding, or other concerning symptoms, you should immediately get in touch with your dentist.
