Quick Reference

A thin metal covering firmly screwed into an implant after placement. In the two-stage technique, the implant and cover screw are covered by oral mucosa to allow osseointegration of the implant to take place. When this has occurred, the implant is exposed, the cover screw removed, and a suitable abutment selected: also known as a healing coping.
