One of the most important therapeutic advances in implantology in the past fifteen plus years is immediate dental implant loading. If the conditions are right, i.e. if we have adequate bone quantity and quality, a sufficient number and size of implants and no inflammation, we can place the teeth onto dental implants within few hours or days and the patient can chew with them immediately.
For immediate loading to be successful, it is essential for the dental team to have extensive experience and knowledge. We have been using immediate loading for simple and complex cases already since 2000, with the same success we have with delayed loading (two months or more). Usually, the patient’s postoperative course is painless, oral aesthetics and function are restored in 24 hours, and the patient can continue his daily activities.
