I am using Raptos® in a molar socket. How long should I wait before placing an implant?

Using both an allograft and the Penguin RFA to improve your chances of predictable and successful surgeries.

Your question about how long before placing an implant in a molar grafted with Raptos® depends on the volume of material used to graft the socket. The more volume of graft used extends healing time. Generally, in a contained socket, most clients are placing implants within five months with good initial stability.

The use of the Penguin RFA could help you decide if your implant is ready to load.

Raptos® should always be hydrated before placement to prevent cell lysis from an osmotic reaction. When that happens, dry particulates will pull out fluids from surrounding vital cells.
