A healing period is expected following implant treatment. During this period the implants are completely fused to the bone. Healing period is shortened to up to a month with some new generation implants. Implants can be produced in two different shapes according to the condition of the gingiva. Some implants heal completely under the gingiva, while some implants heal in a position that the tip of the implant stays over the level of gingiva. Your specialist will decide which type of implant to use.
