Healing Process
by: Anonymous

Implants are usually a two-step surgical procedure. The first step is the actual placement of the implant. After it's placed a cover screw is placed on top of the implant and the area is closed and sutured. It will take approximately 3-6 months for the bone to fuse with the implant (integration). Once the implant is securely integrated the second step of surgery is performed. The implant site is opened and the implant is exposed. A healing cap is temporarily secured to the implant. When the gums have healed, the cap is removed and a custom abutment is placed. This will be the understructure for the prosthesis. The abutment is shaped and a mold is taken for the lab to make the final restoration.

The entire process can take up to nine months to complete. Technology, however, is trying to decrease the healing time involved. Each patient heals differently, so times will vary. After the screws and posts are placed surgically, the healing process can take up to six months and the fitting of replacement teeth no more than two months.

IMPLANTS HEALING TIME
by: DR FARHAN DURRANI

YOU SHOULD IDEALLY WAIT FOR THREE MONTHS MINIMUM BEFORE LOADING.
17 WEEKS - BUT DEPENDING ON DENSITY OF BONE YOU CAN LOAD BEFORE THAT ALSO THAT MEANS YOU SHOULD HAVE KNOWN THE DENSITY OF BONE DURING TREATMENT PLANNING IN CT EVALUATION AND YOUR SURGERY WAS EXCELLENT.
IF LOWER MANDIBLE THAT IS DI BONE ,IF YOU FEEL 17 WEEKS OVER AND DURING DRILLING BONE WAS HARD ,YOU CAN LOAD ,BUT THEN AGAIN YOU ARE THE BEST JUDGE.
READ Dr.MISCH's BOOK IT IS EXCELLENT!
CHECK THE ATTACHMENTS ALSO YOU GOT TO USE FOR DENTURE AND ALIGNMENT OF IMPLANTS
GET OR CONSULT A GOOD PROSTHETIC LAB
BEST OF LUCK
