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 range 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) 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.
