Concerns about pain during or after dental treatments?
We’re the only cosmetic dentist in Huddersfield to be Dental Phobia Certified, carrying out pain-free injections, using digital scanners instead of impressions, and arming you with relaxing strategies to help overcome your fears.
To help you feel more comfortable and less concerned about the pain factor, we explore each of the common treatments we’re asked about one by one - including dental implants, composite bonding, and Invisalign in Bradford.
As one of Yorkshire’s largest and most experienced Invisalign providers, we’re asked a lot of questions about the treatment, including “is Invisalign painful?”. So, do invisible braces hurt? While some individuals might experience mild discomfort during the initial adjustment phase when switching to a new set of aligners, this is more of a pressure or tightness, and is generally only temporary while teeth adjust. In fact, this feeling is a sign that the aligners are working to gently move your teeth into their desired positions. If you ask those who’ve experienced traditional braces ‘do aligners hurt your teeth?’, they’re likely to tell you that Invisalign is far more comfortable - making them the perfect choice for anyone worried about potential pain.
Dental implants are a permanent and effective solution for replacing missing teeth. They act as artificial tooth roots that are implanted in your jawbone, so the procedure is typically performed under local anaesthesia, which means you won't feel any pain during the surgery. But do dental implants hurt after the procedure? There may be some mild discomfort or soreness, which can be aided with over-the-counter pain relief. Generally, most patients find this discomfort manageable and well worth the benefits of having a natural-looking, durable, and functional tooth replacement.
As a popular cosmetic dental procedure, composite bonding is used to repair chipped, discoloured, or misshapen teeth. Is composite bonding painful? Since the process is non-invasive, and is carried out by applying tooth-coloured composite resin to your natural teeth, it’s a quick and pain-free way to achieve a straighter, whiter, more harmonious smile. There’s no drilling, and no damage to the tooth or tooth enamel underneath. Because of this, patients rarely report any significant discomfort during or after the procedure.
