It depends on the circumstance. If the implant was placed into a healed extraction socket (tooth removed previously and bone filled in the socket), then the minimal amount of discomfort, if any at all, would be expected. If the implant was placed at the same time an extraction was done, then there will be some discomfort. If more surgery than that was done (peeling back
gum tissue, bone grafting, etc.) at the time of implant placement, then discomfort surely would be expected after surgery. Anything lasting more than two weeks after implant placement needs to be evaluated by the implant surgeon for complications.
Hope this helps.
After that there should be very little pain unless you chew something hard over the implant site.
AVOID CHEWING ON IT and three months later, you can have the crown made.
