Implant Restoration after Inferior Alveolar Nerve Transposition?

I have a new patient with mandibular implants placed following an inferior alveolar nerve (IAN) transposition technique. The patient is considering delaying the restorative phase, due to unrelated reasons. How long after the surgery and how long after the implants were deemed osseointegrated is the maximum time that the patient can wait to have them restored and avoid undesirables outcomes?

    Once had s patient wait eight years following implant placement in an edentulous mandible. Old Calcitek HA coated press fits. Restored without complications following uncovery.

    I am not answering your question, but!!!!
    If you didn’t do the nerve lateralization or implant placement, I suggest that you do a sensitivity test. Make sure that the patient doesn’t have hyperesthesia or Paresthesia or any esthesia that the patient or an attorney may think of.
    This is just a word of advice since I give expert witness opinion for the defense. Prevent Prevent Prevent.
