Recovery: Most swelling gone in two to four weeks; guard against bumping for six weeks or more. Swelling, bruising, numbness, stiffness, inability to fully open mouth may last several weeks. Comment: In the newest techniques, implants are inserted through the mouth to avoid external scarring. Risks: Infection; shifting or imprecise positioning of implant, requiring removal or second operation. Hardening of scar tissue around implant could cause unnatural appearance. Permanence: For life.
