Healing abutment placed on implant

by Rose

Just had a healing abutment placed on implant after 2 years. Skin cut on 3 sides but left hard skin flap at the back of the abutment. Feels awful and fear it will heal into a hard knot.

Should this skin have been snipped off? Should I go back to get it trimmed off so skin can heal smoothly around the abutment?

Second opinion

Healing abutment needs to be placed before crown placement.
What you are describing is a little confusing - go back to your dentist
Or go to another dentist for a second opinion.
It is tough to evaluate online.
