The healing cap is set on the implant after it has been exposed and remains in the jaw until soft tissue (the gums) has healed.
Its function is to prepare the site for placing the prosthetic device. It can also be used as a temporary prosthetic structure.
Healing caps are available in 3 sizes: Standard, Narrow and Wide.
Healing Cap Heights:
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7 mm.
Selected height is a function of the thickness of the gums.
