Immediate Loading After Implants

In a full arch case where 4 to 6 implants are placed for a full bridge, it is possible to immediately load these implants with an immediate provisional bridge should the bone density be sufficient. In these cases, the implants are placed followed by record taking of the positions of implants during surgery so that an immediate bridge can be constructed and fitted within 48 hours of surgery. The reason why this can be done for a full arch case is the ability to link all the implants together earlier in the treatment for added stability.
