I want to get jaw implants. Can you feel them when you chew? (Photo)

From what I've read, you can't feel them. But can you feel them when you chew? When you lie your head down to the side? thanks.

I have yet to have a patient report that they could feel the implant when they were chewing or any other jaw function. Neither have I had someone say it was a problem to sleep on their side because of jaw implants.
