Immediate Loaded Implants (Teeth-in-an-Hour)

In addition, for certain cases, permanent or temporary prosthetics may be placed immediately during the same treatment visit when the dental implants are surgical placed. This is known as immediate loaded implants. This forms the basis of "Tooth in an Hour" concept that is widely being used by dentists the world over. The immediate loading of dental implants shortens the treatment time and makes it possible to give the patient an esthetic appearance during the whole treatment period.

Benefits of Immediate Loaded Implants

  • Good esthetic results
  • Shorter treatment time with minimized pain
  • Immediately functioning teeth

However, immediate loaded implants does not apply to all cases and is largely dependent on the individual's bone quality and condition.

The decision to immediately load the implant is largely dependent on a large extent on the clinical judgment of the operating surgeon. However, certain rules must be kept in mind:

  • The patient should be healthy and compliant with good oral hygiene
  • Good bone quality and quantity is a prime requirement for immediate implants to be successful
  • The site selected for immediate loading should be free from any infection. Infact even the neighboring teeth should be free from radiologic/clinical signs of infection
  • Even in good bone quality and quantity cases, if the drilling technique removes a lot of bone so that primary implant stability is not attained, immediate loading should not be attempted
  • Stable relationships between opposing teeth
