Is Getting an Implant Denture Painful?

In this video, Dr. Robert Harvey shares his extensive experience with dental implants, highlighting the shift to modern, less invasive mini implants.

I have over 35 years of experience in placing dental implants. Initially, I worked with the traditional style of implants, which involved extensive surgery and typically resulted in significant pain and discomfort for patients. However, over the years, there have been substantial advancements in dental implant technology, which have greatly improved the process.

These developments have led to the introduction of mini dental implants and single-piece implants. The treatment and placement process for these newer types of implants is significantly simpler and less invasive than that of conventional implants. In the past, conventional implant procedures involved extensive surgical preparation, including multiple drills into the bone and screwing the implants in place, which was quite invasive.

Today, the procedure for placing mini implants is minimally invasive, often requiring just a small pinhole to insert the implant. This simplicity has made the process virtually painless and surprisingly easy for patients, many of whom initially approach the procedure with considerable anxiety. After experiencing the ease of the modern methods, the most common reaction I hear from my patients is relief and astonishment at how straightforward the procedure was, often exclaiming, “That’s it? That was as easy as it could be!”
