I got jaw implants placed 18 months ago , the right implant has moved , so I am going to get both implants secured to the bone with screws . How long does the surgery take to screw the jaw implants? How many screws there will be per implant ? Is the recovery long or any different than when i got the implants placed without the screws? Thanks

Screw Fixation of Jaw Angle Implants
Generally a single 1.5mm screw placed percutaneously per implant side is what you need. Placing the screws is a lot easier in recovery with less swelling than the first time.
