Immediate Load Implants

Immediate loaded implants are also known as immediate function implants. This means that permanent or temporary prosthetics are placed onto the implant post during the same period after its surgical placement.
The immediate loading of dental implants shortens the treatment time. It give the patient an esthetic appearance during the whole treatment period. For patients who have poor teeth prognoses require teeth removal and replacement, transition stages from having teeth to no teeth is removed. Patients are able to restore their smiles and teeth in one go.

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.

Stage 1

Implant Site Preparation
  • Tooth extraction
  • Bone grafting

Stage 2

Implant Post Surgical Insertion

Stage 1

Prosthetics Placed On Implant Post
  • crowns
  • bridge
  • hybrid dentures

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.

  1. There should be no infection or disorder at the implant site.
  2. Good oral hygiene and patient compliances is adhered to.
  3. The gingival or gum status of adjacent teeth is favorable and stable
  4. Bone condition, density and volume of the area for loaded will need to be sufficiently strong and good for immediate prostheses loading for single and multiple implant crowns and bridges. For full jaw immediate function concepts, All-on-4 implants or zygoma implants may be considered but carries higher risks and will require good care maintenance for successful results.

Conclusion to Dental Implants

Immediate load implants or immediate function implants is an advance implant treatment procedure typically performed for simple single implant crown or full jaw implants with hybrid bridges called All-on-4 / ProArch. It is also the treatment procedure of zygoma implants with hybrid bridge. The concept follows that temporary prostheses are placed on during the same surgical visit or period when dental implant posts are embedded in jaw. Immediate function implants speeds up treatment timings and reduces the need for several surgical stages.

Unlike conventional implants, immediate load implants may not be suited for all case indications. A skilled dental specialists and thorough considerations on pros and cons of your end results prostheses needs to be balanced prior to deciding if this methodology and implant option is for you.
