    Hi
    I had implant surgery 4 weeks ago and a metal screw came out of my mouth last night.
    Is it the implant itself or just a healing screw/cap, please?
    My dentist is closed over the weekend!
    Cheers

    Implant come out with healing cap attached. That's the end of that - can't be re-used, sorry.

    Can't tell. Go back to whoever implanted it.
