The healing cap won’t come out! I had that fear myself at first, but when they took it out to do impressions for my crown, I saw what it looked like and lost that fear. It is like a screw. So the healing cap is actually screwed into the implant. I have never even had mine loosen, and I have had four implants now.I want to use straw because I feel like every time when I drink soup or flavored drinks, it might get into the implant and hard to clean. To be honest, I am still not comfortable brushing on the healing cap and the gum. The dental assistant told me to brush in a circular moment when brushing heading cap. I really don’t know what is the correct way to brush. And just read online that sometimes the healing cap comes out. Has that ballot to before? I wish I can go back for a quick appointment on a monthly basis to just check on how it progress. Three months seem like a long time.
It won’t hurt the healing cap to get food on it. It is snug in your gums and nothing will get past it to the implant. Just avoid crunchy stuff on it or sticky stuff. My first one I was a nervous wreck. After that I realized they clean easily. I didn’t do a circular motion, just brushed it and used an interdental brush on the sides of it once the swelling went down.
