Immediate load implants are becoming more popular in dental clinics across the world. The term immediate load means the ability to place the final crown on top of the implant and abutment within 3 to 5 days after the implant surgery placement. At DentaVac, we can do immediate load implants but encourage our patients to read and learn about the risk and benefits of immediate load implants.
At Dentavac we make sure our patients understand that everyone is not a candidate for this procedure. Due to the density of bone, mandibular immediate load implants are more successful than maxillary. Sometimes the crown on top of an immediate load implant will not have the height or width of the regular tooth to avoid stress on the implant during the healing process. After the tissue heals, the gingiva at the location of the immediate load implant may shrink and the crown may not be tight against the gingiva creating space and a place for food to trap.
Our patients are aware that 2-Stage implants are more successful and more aesthetic and functional but immediate load implants sometimes is an option.
