Some pain and discomfort after dental implant surgery is completely normal. However, if you experience pain that is particularly acute, or if it does not significantly decrease within 7-10 days, it could be a problem.
What might be causing my dental implant pain?
- Injury to the area
- Infection in the gum surrounding the implant
- Infection in the bone beneath the implant
- Aberrant nerve
