Once the implant is placed inside the jaw bone, the healing process begins immediately. The length and course of this process depend on the quality of the bone in the implant site. The healing process, duration and steps are determined after the operation by the implanting physician.
A second mini-surgical procedure may be required after the first recovery period. In this process, the upper part of the implant, adapted to the jawbone, is inserted. This piece is the gum-forming part of the prosthesis, which will be located in the mouth. The process is quite easy and short.
The recovery period after this mini-surgical procedure is about one week-ten days. At the end of this period, prosthetic procedures can be started.
