The gum normally heals quickly with minimal discomfort. The sutures can normally be removed two weeks after the operation.
During the bone healing phase new bone cells are deposited all over the implants. This process takes four to six months in the upper jaw. The bone in the lower jaw is harder, so the healing process is completed after only three to four months. During this period you will continue to use your modified denture or precisely fitted provisional components – you will not have to give up anything. With some care you will be able to eat quite normally.
