Dental implants of immediate loading are those in which the placement of the prosthesis is performed in the same time of implant or within 72 hours.
In the beginnings of implantology, it was necessary to wait a period of six to nine months after implant placement to placement of the prosthesis. This period was essential for a successful and predictable results. However, a few years ago, they began to develop new surfaces for implants and new protocols were studied to place the prosthesis at the time of implant placement. This has allowed that today specialists dentistry and stomatology can make in their daily practice dental implants immediately loaded.
When you can perform immediate load dental implants?
To allow a dental implant immediate loading is necessary to comply with various requirements. One of the most important is related to the primary stability of the implant placement, ie, the implant is fixed from the outset. It depends largely on the quality and quantity of the bone holding the implant area. Another important factor is that the patient should be aware that it can not chew very hard foods during the initial phase of treatment.
Because of the need to comply with these requirements, it is mandatory to perform a thorough clinical and radiological diagnosis to determine if immediate loading can be made successfully.
Clinical research shows that, if all the conditions, treatment with immediate loading obtains success rates equal to conventional treatment are respected.
Benefits of dental implants immediately loaded
The main benefit of this type of technique is that the patient leaves with teeth fixed the same day of the implant placement. This represents an aesthetic and functional improvement. Thanks to the technique of immediate load implants can eliminate the period in which the patient requires a removable provisional prosthesis, ie, a prosthesis that can be removed and replaced.
The risk with this type of implant is the lack of osseointegration of the implant, which may occur if the technique is not successful.
