John Zalesky's Expert Contributions
It usually lasts a few days and will then subside. The first few days are the most pressure on the teeth for movement. Each time the wire is tightened or color bands are changed it might be a little uncomfortable. What you are inquiring about is normal. READ MORE
This is a very broad question. It depends on whether you had a single implant or multiple implants. Your practitioner should have gone over post-op instructions. Some implant surgeries are very simple and others complicated. It also depends on where the location of the implant is and if a temporary tooth was put on the implant (I.e. a front tooth). I would use caution and consult the doctor who did the surgery. READ MORE
I have found that there is no need for prescription pain medication. Most patients say they have taken a small dose of Ibuprofen or Tylenol after the procedure and they have been fine. READ MORE
It is possible to get 4 implants at once, however, there are a lot of variables both medically and dentally. Implants are a very technique-sensitive procedure. I would make sure your dental practitioner obtains an honest and accurate medical history as well as proper 3D imaging to make sure you are a candidate for dental implants. Pre-appointment planning and measuring the site for an implant is vital to the long-term success of the procedure. READ MORE
You should be able to eat normal things and care for it the same way you care for a normal tooth (brush/floss/Waterpik, etc.). Best regards, John Zalesky, DMD, MBS, FICOI Colorado AGD President READ MORE
Yes, they absolutely can, provided you have adequate bone for implant placement. There are attachments that go on the implant that allows the denture to snap on to it for stability. I recommend an evaluation by your dentist. Best regards, John Zalesky, DMD, MBS, FICOI Colorado AGD President READ MORE
Depends on how extensive the implant surgery is (single implant vs. multiple). When I perform implant surgeries there is usually minimal discomfort, however, if multiple implants are being placed and tissue has to be manipulated there usually is more post operative discomfort. As with any surgery, I would advise taking it easy for a day or two afterwords to keep your blood pressure lower. Over the counter pain medication is a big help.

It is not uncommon for your gums to be a little swollen. I would rinse with warm salt water. If it persists I would contact the dentist office for them to take a look. Best regards, John Zalesky, DMD, MBS, FICOI Colorado AGD President READ MORE
