Thus attempts to shorten the overall length of treatment period have been made by early or immediate loading of implants following placement and immediate placement in fresh extraction sockets.
This concept of immediate implant loading or TOOTH IN A DAY has become popular due to less trauma, reduction in overall treatment time, decrease in hard and soft tissue resorption, increase in patient's aesthetic demands and finally increased psychological benefit for the patient.
Immediate implants require meticulous clinical and radiographical planning of the implant site. Comprehensive assessment of implant placement site with pre- operative prediction of tooth position, shape , form , gingival bio type and finally implant position & angulation is done.
Surgeons may wish to load the implant site on the day of surgery or after 2 weeks with a temporary tooth. Final prosthesis can be delivered at a later stage. Initial stability of the implant is very essential for immediate loading with a tooth after implant placement.
Dental implants that are immediately placed and loaded into carefully selected extraction site have higher survival rate.
Excellent soft tissue aesthetics
The concept of ALL ON 4 treatment protocol has been extremely successful in immediate loading of full arch with ease. Tilted implants can be used to immediately placed a temporary prosthesis in full mouth cases where bone level in posterior region was less.
With improvement in design and surfaces of the newer implants , immediate implant placement and loading is possible in lot many cases.
Tapered implant body with active cutting blades provide extremely good initial stability in the bone which lays foundation for immediate tooth placement.
We at Dr Mathur's Dental Clinic & Implant Center strongly believe in the concept of immediate implant placement if possible due to its obvious advantages over conventional protocol.
