The duration of implant treatment may vary from person to person. In some of our patients, the prosthesis phase can be passed on the same day with the application of all on four implant implants, and in some patients, the adaptation period may be expected due to additional surgical procedures. It is expected that the implants will merge with the bone in an average of 3 months in the upper jaw and 2 months in the lower jaw, and then porcelain coatings are applied on them. If additional procedures are performed in the presence of thin or insufficiently high bone, the waiting period may be extended up to 6 months.
