Immediate load implant is a fancy way to say that rather than waiting for three months before receiving a restorative, patients can have the implant installed during the same surgery or within 24 – 48 hours. When analyzing if an immediate load implant is appropriate for you, Smile By Design dentists will consider your bone density, gum shape, and the amount of bone left in the target area.
The benefit of immediate load implants is that you won’t have to worry about showing a metal stub for an extended period of time, and you’ll be able to talk freely without concern for the appearance of your smile. In addition, the first restorative you’ll receive is a temporary replacement made to look natural while allowing time for the bone and gum to heal. Our dental specialists will make sure to brief you on dietary restrictions to reduce the chance of any damage occurring post-surgery, and after the appropriate time has elapsed, patients return to our clinic to receive their permanent restorative.
Another benefit of immediate load implants is that the surgery can be done in combination to replace more than one tooth, entire sections of the mouth can be remade to reestablish bone health, facial structure, and an improved smile.
