What is the treatment of immediate loading dental implants?
The dental implants of immediate load is the treatment by which just after the placement of some implants are loaded some fixed teeth on top of them. It can be right after the surgery or at most in a time of 48 hours later.
What is the difference between immediate loading and immediate aesthetics?
Basically they are two equal concepts. In both of us we put some teeth right after surgery or at the most in a period of 48 hours after surgery. The main objective of the immediate aesthetic, as its name indicates, is to solve aesthetic problems such as covering a gap when we lack a tooth. In the immediate load, a provisional prosthesis is made over the implants of an entire arcade, which is already in operation and allows us to chew.
Which patients are candidates to be able to perform the load or immediate aesthetics?
Any patient is a candidate to make an immediate load of the implants, now, not all the patients CAN be made. In order to carry out an immediate load of dental implants, a series of requirements is needed, such as quantity and quality of bone, suitable implants to carry out the immediate loading both in size and surface. Something very important is what we call primary stability, that is, when we place the implant in the patient's mouth it has to be firmly fixed to the bone. If there is no primary stability even if you want to carry out the immediate loading it will not be possible because it would be synonymous with sure failure. But in general, with good health and with the participation of the patient we can make immediate load in most cases, although not in all.
What do we gain with the immediate load?
With the immediate loading of the implants we gain several things: a first factor is the psychological. You can take fixed teeth on top of the implants from the first moment, so we can either discard or abandon that removable device that does not always have the patient in agreement or that does not make him comfortable enough. Another factor that we also gain in many of the cases is to shorten the final treatment slightly, since the treatment of implants is a long treatment, and with the immediate load we can slightly shorten your time. Also in many cases we can save ourselves a second surgery that in most cases is usually necessary.
Is immediate loading on implants a safe treatment?
Immediate loading on implants is a safe, predictable and reliable treatment. It is important that we understand that we have to comply with the requirements that we have previously mentioned: to have a bone of quality and quantity, to follow an adequate surgical technique and, in addition, the patient's collaboration is very important for the final success of the treatment.. As already mentioned, with the immediate loading implants you can eat, but you have to be very aware that at the beginning they are indicated to eat soft foods, maintaining a soft diet during the time of osseointegration, that is, the time that the implant takes hold on to the bone and be well fixed. In general, with the patient's collaboration, the immediate load treatment in dental implants is a great success.
