The bone cells take three or four months to multiply and stick to the implants with perfect integration

Of course, during that period, the patient can wear his protheses, so that his work and social life are not disturbed.

After that healing period, which varies according to the bone's initial quality and the implant's location, the abutments may be placed. This intervention, without anaesthesia, consists of removing the cover screw and placing an extension there called the final abutment or transgingival connector, thus creating a link between implant and tooth. At this stage, by means of X-rays, the dentist verifies whether the implants adhere perfectly to the bone and whether the autments are fastened precisely to the implants. Nowadays, the healing abutments are placed on the same day as the implants, which avoids a second surgery, but more precautions must be taken during the initial healing period.
