How to check implant stability (whether the implant has “taken root”)
How long to wait after an implant is placed? Secondary stability is achieved when the living bone at the cellular level attaches to the implant surface. Usually 6-8 weeks is enough for this process, but in practice it often happens that the implant cannot be loaded after this time. Let’s see if more time is…

The main differences between implants In this context, there are only two classes of implants depending on how deeply they are planted relative to the bone ridge and soft gum tissue. There are many shapes, cylindrical, conical, aggressively and smoothly threaded, but these are all important for osseointegration. If you look from the point of…
