Immediately loaded implants are those implants procedures that do not involve waiting time for the placement of a prosthesis / tooth above them. As is known, the first implant is placed and there is a waiting time, in these cases, not done. It is usually applied this procedure in anterior teeth, for aesthetics.


Difference between immediate loading implants and conventional

Immediately loaded implants are distinguished from conventional implants that require initial bone anchorage very important. In the same procedure the intermediate part, not a healing cap, and a provisional crown, as the final tooth, but without occlusal load, ie without creating chewing placed.


When opting for each type of implant

Whenever possible is the classic procedure, which is more than tested by experts in more reliable dentistry and stomatology. The aesthetic problem is solved by a hollow adhesive bridges to the adjacent teeth. We must reserve these procedures for cases of anterior teeth in patients without clenching habits.


Possibility of injury or rejection of bone with immediate load implants

Individual implants immediate loading, extraction, need synthetic bone, and longer maturity, although bearing a provisional one. Cases of multiple implants require the patient to remain in soft diet for months, are more likely to bone loss in surface area, and need more monitoring visits to the dentist during that period. Although all, absolutely all implants lost bone over time, immediate implants have a longer period of stabilization, and need more controls during the first year.
