The consequences of immediate placement and loading of dental implants


Dr. Ormianer earned his dental degree (1988) at Tel-Aviv University. He continued on at Tel-Aviv University to complete his clinical training in management of TMJ disorders (1991) and the post-graduate prosthodontics program (1996).

The objective of implant dentistry is to provide the patient with an esthetic and functional prosthesis. Augmentation procedures and “stress free” healing period extend the treatment time required to restore these patients.

Various attempts at immediate implant loading have been made over the years in response to patients’ desires to shorten treatment time. The first protocol for the immediate loading of osseointegrated implants involved the placement of 3 to 4 implants in the anterior mandible to support an overdenture. A later protocol involved the placement of 6 to 10 implants evenly distributed in the mandible and maxillae. Each alternate implant was used to immediately support a screw-retained provisional prosthesis, and the remaining implants were allowed a traditional submerged healing protocol. Other attempts at immediate loading of single-tooth implants in fresh extraction sites were reported with high survival rates. In this presentation, the team approach to single tooth replacement and full mouth rehabilitation with various immediate loading protocols will be demonstrated regarding the aspects that influence long-term success results.
