Immediate loading implants

What are immediate loading implants?

Immediate loading implants are those in which the dental implant (screw that replaces the root of the tooth) and a provisional prosthesis are placed in a single intervention. This technique favors the healing of the bone tissue and the integration of the implants in the bone, which makes it possible to dispense with the period without fixed teeth, with the consequent aesthetic and functional advantages, because the prosthesis resting on the gums does not reduce the discomfort , so that the patient can smile and eat from the first moment.

The provisional dental prosthesis is removed when it has been three to six months since the insertion of the implants. Instead, the dentist will place the final piece that has been made so that it integrates with the rest of the patient's teeth. The intervention is carried out under local anesthesia.

For what type of patients are immediate loading implants indicated?

These types of implants are recommended for those patients who suffer the loss of one, several or all of the teeth or if they suffer a significant deterioration of them. In addition, the patient must meet certain requirements to be able to undergo the procedure. Among them, have an adequate amount and quality of bone, undergo a good periodontal maintenance and also comply with a good gingival and periodontal state of the adjacent teeth.


Immediate loading implants offer multiple advantages for the patient


How is the procedure carried out?

The implants that are placed on the patient can be a unit or a full arch. In the second case you can place between four and six implants that serve as support for a prosthesis.

The fixed prosthesis that is placed initially is provisional, and is done in this way to guarantee a correct osseointegration of the implant in the bone. Once the period has been completed according to the specialist's criteria, usually after the third month, the final fixed prosthesis is placed.

Advantages of immediate loading implants

One of the most important advantages for the patient with the placement of an immediate load implant is that it offers the possibility of continuously carrying the temporary fixed prosthesis without the need to carry the removable prosthesis, which can be annoying. In addition, it offers a progressive adaptation to the definitive prosthesis.

The patient can recover the functionality of their teeth, especially chewing, in addition to improving their phonation and aesthetics.

Some specialists even recommend immediate loading and conscious sedation to replace all the teeth with fixed teeth in just one day.
