My surgeon is recommending a temporary crown three months after surgery and wearing a flipper?

Implant crown, flipper,
This is a conservative approach to make sure you get the best Aesthetic results. Depending on the level and the contour of the gum this might be the right approach.
Well, your dentist is right. You have recently had dental implant and it will take some time to adjust the gums in the mouth. So go for temporary crown treatment instead of having permanent.
Temp crown on plant
Your dentist trying to flare the gum tissue and establish what is called an emergence profile which is the natural widening of the tooth as it comes into the mouth. This can be done with a healing abutment for a week or two as well. The permanent crown should be made after the gum tissue is established.
