Gums Growing

Hi Belal,

First of all, make sure that you are following your home care instructions exactly and are not smoking or have any active gingivitis. The healing process for implants can take as long as 6 months. If your gums have regressed and are uncovering areas that they had initially covered, I would make an appointment with your implant specialist as soon as possible.
