Immediate loading implant-based prosthesis to replace missing teeth

Immediate loading implant-based oral rehabilitation

Immediate loading implant-based oral rehabilitation takes 5 working days

Modern dentistry aims to restore patient oral health predictably and helps recover function, aesthetics, comfort, and fluency. A complete immediate loading implant-based oral rehabilitation is considered the most promising dental treatment with life-changing benefits among all the procedures.

Immediate loading implants are globally regarded as a preeminent solution for replacing missing teeth because they are the closest you can get to healthy, natural teeth like a denture. In a dental implant procedure, a prosthesis is surgically positioned on one-phase implants into the jawbone beneath your gums. Once in place, they provide stable support and act as your natural tooth root. The treatment allows some people to live life how they want, i.e., confidently, laughing, eating, and smiling, without worrying about toothless faces.

How Does an immediate loading implant work? Think of this dental implant as artificial tooth roots fused into your jawbone, providing stable support to your artificial teeth. To get implant treatment, you must have healthy gums and commit to maintaining your mouth hygiene with regular dental visits. The beauty of an immediate loading implant (implant-based prosthesis) is that it is usable in cases where the bone density and quality are not adequate; therefore, the traditional two-phase implant is not applicable.

Some of the top benefits of immediate loading implant

  • An immediate loading implant is implantable in a single phase. Consequently, the implantation of an implant is a single intervention. The two-phase implantation takes two stages.
  • The immediate loading implant can be loaded immediately. That means, among other things, that the long-term temporary denture made after implant placement attachable to the implants. That is not the case with two-phase.
  • An immediate loading implant consists of a single piece. It makes implantation easier, and the time spent on implantation is reduced.
  • The immediate loading implant can be implanted not only in the tooth bone but also in the jaw bone. This type of implant is also implantable in case of bone deficiency. Two-phase is not.
  • The immediate loading implant is implantable perpendicularly and at a different angle. It is essential in the case of bone deficiency because it enables the most suitable bone tissue to be obtained. There is no such possibility with two-phase.
  • For the reasons listed, using an immediate loading implant most likely makes bone replacement unnecessary.

What does oral rehabilitation mean?
Oral rehabilitation becomes necessary when there is not a single tooth suitable for dental care in the oral cavity. Oral rehabilitation may be possible on the upper -, lower jawbone, or both. The latter is full mouth rehabilitation. It often happens that there are remaining teeth, but they are unsuitable for further treatment, or the treatment is only a short, temporary solution. There are necessary conditions for saving a tooth, both from a health and financial point of view. The most important of these is that a tooth should only be “saved” and treated if it represents a reliable solution that will last for years.

Users of such dentures face many challenges during wear, such as lousy biting and chewing power, inadequate stability, and other discomforts. Oral rehabilitation is possible traditionally, and this is more common and based on dental implants. In the traditional method, the denture is fixed with an artificial vacuum floor and gluing.

The other solution, both technologically and in terms of the result, is the denture fixed on a dental implant, including one-phase implant-based oral rehabilitation under general anesthesia. The end goal is the same in both cases: replacing the natural tooth root with a dental implant. At the same time, in the case of tooth replacement based on dental implants, there are a lot of differences between two-phase and one-phase implants and implantation. Both the implant and the implantation method are different.

Process of oral rehabilitation with immediate loading implants under general anesthesia
Oral rehabilitation with immediate loading implants occurs in two steps. In the first part, the implantation and the preparation of the long-term temporary denture take place, and in the second part, the preparation of the permanent denture(s).

First time
– Free, personal consultation with the implantologist performing the implantation.
– CT and panoramic x-rays.
– Detailed examination of the oral cavity, particularly concerning the condition of the bones and gums.
– Consultation with the anesthetist before general anesthesia.
– General anesthesia.
– Removal of teeth unsuitable for prosthetic treatment.
– Preparation of the required number of one-phase implants for implantation.
– Implantation of the required number of one-phase implants.
– Sampling for a long-term temporary denture(s).- Preparation of long-term temporary denture (s).
– Fixation of the long-term temporary denture or dentures on the implants. The dentures are fixed and not removable by the patient.
– The necessary control tests.

It is necessary to wait approximately six months between the first and the second visit, but we recommend to have made the permanent denture(s) within a year.

Second occasion
– Free personal consultation with the implantologist who performed the implant placement.
– Panoramic X-ray recording.
– Thorough examination of the oral cavity, particularly regarding the condition of the implants.
– Sampling for the permanent denture.
– Preparation of permanent porcelain denture(s). The permanent denture is fixed and not removable by the patient, similar to the long-term temporary denture.
– The necessary control tests.
