Any surgery requires meticulous incision design to minimize post operative pain. The smaller the incision, the quicker the wound heals. Implant surgery can now be done using a tiny incision to access and prepare the bone. No suturing is required and the gum tissue heals within a couple days.
The picture above shows the immediate post-operative view of the incisions around the healing abutment of the implant. The healing abutment will later be removed and replaced by the implant crown.
