Immediate load dental implants are implants that have teeth fixed to them within 24 to 48 hours of being inserted. This is different to normal procedure. Normally, a dental implant is allowed to heal on its own for 3 to 6 months before a tooth is fitted to it.
It is important to understand that immediate load dental implants can not be achieved the same as any other implants. For example, Basal Implants are perfect for immediate loading procedures (unlike regular implants)
Immediate loading has shortened the transitional period between implant placement and implant restoration considerably. Benefits for the patient include reduced overall treatment time, reduced number of visits to clinicians, comfort during the healing period and improved aesthetic and phonetic aspects.
