Is it ok to leave them off? About 3wks ago the dentist moved the angle of one of my back implants,I thought for 2wks that either there wasn't one on there or id swallowed it. I asked him about it tuesday+he said he hadnt put one on,but I was told by a previous dentist if they came off they had to put back on asap. I'm confused 🤔

Presumably the gum tissue around the implant has healed already (given how long it’s been), so a healing cap isn’t necessary.

Perhaps not but still feels spikey on the tongue.
