Are Implants osseoingrated – or not ?

| March 27, 2014 | 1 Comment

I already have put 2 dental implants on my left upper jaw and after 5 months the doctor said to me that the implants are osseingrated but not perfectly and I shall wait maybe 3-4 months more or posible a year more.

My bone was weak but still enough to use dental implants as a solution for my dental problem.

Is there any chance of a failure?
Is not moving the implant is already stable

Thanks in advance for answering my question

    It can take 3-9 months for full osseointegration to occur in the upper jaw. I would follow your dentist’s advice on waiting until the healing is complete.

    If you were to go ahead and place the crown on the implant without the bone being fully integrated around the titanium post you would increase the likelihood of implant failure.

    The bone on the upper jaw is less dense than on the bottom and sometimes takes longer to heal. It sounds like you are healing properly and that your dentist had rather be 100% sure before moving forward with treatment.
