Over the last few decades, Dental implants have become the gold standard of replacement of missing teeth. Research based on earlier Dental Implant designs leads to the notion that after placement of the Dental Implants in a patient’s mouth a period of 3-6 months should be left in order for the implant to integrate into the patient’s bone. This process has the biggest drawback that the tooth attachment to that particular tooth is delayed. With the growing era of research, newer designs of Dental Implant have been fabricated which have a better and faster integration of the bone to the Dental Implant, giving the liberty to attach a temporary crown, teeth or bridge to the implant within a span of 2-3 days after placement. This concept is known as “Immediate Loading” in Dental Literature. In doing so, it will provide you with an immediate aesthetic solution, and in many cases – a functional one too.
While surgical skill and technique are some of the more obvious influencing factors, there are other important aspects that dictate the outcome of a successful Immediate Loading Dental Implant procedure while minimizing risks. These include: Bone quality/quantity , Dental Implant’s initial stability, Dental Implant Design & features, Patient habits and also patients need to be fully committed for maintaining excellent oral hygiene, eating soft foods, preventing excessive forces on the Dental implant-supported restoration and preventing harmful habits during the period of integration of Dental Implant to bone.
