implant uncovering and integration check prior to restoration
- three to five months after an implant is placed, the bone should be ready for the implant to be uncovered, tested and restored.
- The difference in time depends on the bone health and many other factors and is determined by the surgeon.
- The patient needs to be scheduled to see the surgeon ( Dr. Penchas in our group) to uncover and test the implant.
- This is a 45 minute appointment – the patient will be numbed and the implant tested and made ready. The dentist will receive a referral letter with the implant information on it.
