Gum post implant
Could you tell me approx how long does it take for the gum to" settle down" after an implant. I also had tissue implanted at the same time as there was some bone and gum loss. I don' t smoke and massage the area gently.
healing time varies from patient to patient. usually the pain will settle in 7-10 days time
