DENTAL IMPLANT PAIN, EXISTS?
It is natural to have question regarding pain caused by the implant’s insertion. With the aid of pain medication, we can perform any type of surgery with no pain and increased comfort. In addition, inhalosedation enhances the state of calm and relaxes the patient, removing most of the discomfort created by the procedure.
INDICATIONS AND ANTI-PAIN TREATMENT FOLLOWING AN IMPLANT
If you follow our advice before and after the implant procedure, you will not have any problems with pain. It’s advisable to obey the treatment and respect the time of administration if you want to speed up the healing process and avoid complications. The combination of antibiotics, anti-inflammatory and pain killers removes the perspective of pain. Don’t wait to see if you can handle the pain. The treatment for pain must begin with its prevention. The moment the anesthetic wears off, take the first pain killer. Following the surgery, pain kicks in right away if the patient refuses medication. After the pain has set in, it is more difficult to combat.
INFLAMMATIONS CAN TRIGGER DENTAL IMPLANT PAIN
Ice or cold bandages applied on the check are very useful. They must be replaced constantly in order to keep the temperature low in the area. As a result, the inflammation goes down and you prevent the occurrence of pain.
Gingival wounds can also be treated. You need to use a healing gel (Gengigel) and a disinfectant (Elugel) for a few days, even after the wound has closed. Apply the gel with your fingers and do not massage the area. The two gels must be alternated at regular times.
It is advisable that you avoid effort, sports, lifting heavy objects, since they too can lead to complications and eventually dental implant pain.
