Straumann implants are unique in that the gum tissue is not placed over the implant after it has been anchored into the jawbone. This means that the healing period is quicker and a second appointment to uncover the implant is not required. The gums are numbed with local anaesthetic before the implant is anchored to prevent pain. Once the implant has been placed, the gum tissue is left to heal for around 6 weeks to 10 months. During this time a temporary restoration will be fitted to enable full function. Once the implant has healed fully the permanent restoration will be placed and you can start showing off your new smile.
In some cases there may be insufficient bone tissue to support an implant. If this is the case regenerative gum tissue or bone substitute material can be used to bolster the site of the implant.
