Osseointegration: Affect of prosthetic procedures during the healing period?

Last Updated January 04, 2019

I performed a one-stage surgery, placing fixtures in lower premolar and molar sites. I achieved good initial stability with torque greater than 40Ncm. I screwed in healing abutments using manual finger pressure. I would like to start on prosthetic procedures at Week 8, in order to fit and load crowns at Week 12.

Will osseo-integration be adversely affected by using finger force to unscrew the healing abutments, screw in impression copings, make impression, unscrew the impression copings, and re-screwing the healing abutments?
