Learn more about immediate dental implants
Depending on the indication it can take between three to twelve months to complete dental implant treatment, with potentially multiple trips to the dentist required for various elements of the process. When appropriate, immediate implant placement and immediate implant loading offer an opportunity to shorten time-to-teeth and reduce the number of visits, benefiting both the practice and patient.
Many potential implant patients wonder if an implant can be placed immediately after extraction. The answer is yes. However, the proper tooth extraction and implant timeline is different for everyone. While one patient might greatly benefit from immediate implant placement, another may be more suited for a delayed procedure.
Read on to learn more about delayed and immediate implants, their benefits and the importance of choosing the right implant timeline and system for both the clinic and the patient.
What Is Delayed Implant Loading?
Delayed implant loading is the traditional option for implant procedures. First, the dentist removes the patient’s old tooth. They then wait for the area to heal fully before inserting the implant. The healing process typically takes around three to four months, during which time the patient can wear dentures if preferred.
After the site completely heals, the surgeon will then place the fixture and load the prosthesis.
What Is Immediate Implant Placement and Loading?
In immediate dental implant placement — not to be confused with immediate placement — the dental surgeon places the implant fixture immediately after the tooth’s extraction. The process has recently gained popularity and enjoys a high success rate among eligible patients.
Immediate loading occurs when the surgeon places a restoration within 48 hours of the placement — often during the same procedure.
Immediate load dental implants represent an incredible advance in implant dentistry. The advantage of immediate load implants is that you don’t have to wear a removable temporary tooth replacement while the implants are bonding with the bone.
When implant technology was first introduced, the protocol for placing dental implants was to place the implant and wait for a period of 3–6 months before making the crown or “loading” the implant. It was thought at the time that the implant must be unloaded in order for it to bond with the bone.
More recent research has shown that under the right conditions, implants can be loaded right away and achieve the same high rate of success as unloaded dental implants. We now know for a fact that it is not the load on the implant that determines whether or not it will bond with the bone but rather the degree of “micromotion” of the implant within the bone.
Patients want to be treated in an efficient and expedient manner. When seeking a solution, they want safe and effective treatment that can be performed in the shortest possible time and with as little pain and discomfort as possible. Immediate implant placement and loading are valuable techniques for the clinician to call upon, but their skill and experience, as well as case selection, are all crucial elements to ensure successful long-term results.
