In brief: No.
Dental implants will not have chronic pain associated with them unless there is an underlying infection , the implants impinge upon a nerve, or possibly is too close to a vital tooth.

You should not have chronic pain.
You should go back to the person who placed the implants. There could be many reasons for the pain but it is not normal

In brief: Hard to say
Without more information, it is impossible to say.
Typically there is no chronic pain after the surgical placement, unless there was a complication which would have been discussed and addressed. If your implants have been restored and the bite (occlusion) is not completely adjusted, you might have chronic jaw muscle pain. See your surgeon and restorative dentist for an evaluation.

In brief: No
This is uncommon.
It depends where the chronic pain is, in the tmj, jaw bone where the dental implant was placed or the adjacent teeth? Have the dental implant site be evaluated by a doctor.

It is not a common occurrence but it is certainly possible.
You should return to the doctor that did the implants for an evaluation.
