The healing process that ensues after the placement of dental implants stands as a pivotal stage that profoundly contributes to the enduring triumph of your dental implants.

Reasons Underscoring the Significance of the Healing Process


During the healing process, a remarkable biological phenomenon called osseointegration takes place. This entails the fusion of the dental implant with the neighbouring jawbone, culminating in a robust and steadfast foundation for the replacement tooth or teeth. The duration required for proper healing facilitates the seamless integration of the implant into the bone, thereby assuring an enduring and resilient outcome.

Stability and Strength

The healing process allots the implant the time needed to establish a steadfast connection with the jawbone. As osseointegration unfurls, the implant becomes firmly anchored within the bone structure, conferring the indispensable stability and potency necessary to sustain the artificial tooth or teeth. This integration forms the bedrock for the overall operational capacity and longevity of the dental implant.

Soft Tissue Healing

In tandem with bone healing, the adjacent soft tissues—such as the gums—also necessitate time for unhindered recuperation. The healing process offers the gums the opportunity to regenerate and adjust to the implant’s presence, thus fostering a wholesome and natural aesthetic. Adequate healing of the soft tissues not only augments comfort but also contributes to a harmonious fit and a visually appealing appearance of the final restoration.

Prevention of Infection

The healing process serves as a shield against infection risk. Subsequent to implant placement, the body’s innate healing mechanisms activate, prompting the gradual closure of the surgical site and thus curtailing the likelihood of bacterial intrusion. Upholding impeccable oral hygiene during the recovery period is of paramount importance in minimising the prospect of complications.

Integration with Bite Function

Healing time facilitates the seamless integration of the implant with adjacent oral structures, encompassing neighbouring teeth and bite functionality. This integration enables the implant to harmonise with the natural occlusion, thereby ensuring the equitable distribution of forces during activities like chewing and speaking. Such integration with bite function emerges as an indispensable determinant for the sustained success and functionality of the dental implant.

Patient Comfort

Adequate healing time fosters patient comfort throughout the treatment journey. It facilitates the gradual subsiding of post-operative discomfort or swelling, resulting in an increasingly comfortable and pain-free experience. Adhering to the recommended healing duration empowers patients to manage any fleeting discomfort tied to the surgical procedure more effectively.

Longevity and Triumph

The healing process inaugurates the trajectory towards the enduring triumph and longevity of your dental implants. By bestowing the implant with the requisite healing span, you provide it with an optimal milieu for seamless integration into your oral anatomy, solidifying its position as a functional component. This, in turn, substantially heightens the prospects of realising fruitful and enduring outcomes.

Have been coming to this practice for years, despite it being a good long drive. Initially I had concerns when Andre handed the reigns over, but these concerns proved unfounded as the team continued to be just as kind, caring and attentive as always. Any dental work is always carried out thoroughly and diligently and I always leave feeling like nothing has been missed or rushed. In addition, the practice uses ‘the wand’ for anaesthesia, a barely noticeable and ultra fine needle that administers slowly and without much discomfort. As someone who has a fear of needles this has helped hugely. I often struggle with tooth sensitivity so the hygienist visit is always something I dread, but Agota’s reassuring and patient attitude makes things go much more smoothly. Honestly can’t recommend them highly enough.

Highly recommend. I’ve been coming here for over 20 years. It’s not local to me but I travel here because it’s worth it. The care here is truly excellent. I was worried when Andre retired but Keelin is every bit as good and so I will continue to come here.
