Stages for Immediate Load Implants
For immediate load implants, the 2nd stage prosthetics on implants is done during the same period when the 1st stage implant post placement is done.This means that Stage 2 and 3 are done together.
Impression taking for prosthetics such as crown, bridge or dentures is taken after the surgical implant post placement is done. Upon delivery of the labworks, the prosthetics on implants is then fitted onto the abutments and implant posts during the same trip. The prosthetics on implants may be temporary or permanent.
The dental treatment steps for immediate loaded implants are the same as conventional implants, the only main difference is temporary crown, bridge or dentures is loaded onto the implants posts after its surgical placement.
Before immediate load implants are done, your dentist will need to check on inclusion or exclusion criterias. One day and immediate load implants do not apply to all cases. If this protocol concept is feasible for your case, completion time for dental implants are reduced from more than 8 months to just weeks.
