What is delayed loading implantology?
The delayed loading implantology is a traditional technique that involves the place of prosthetic crowns after a certain period from the insertion of the dental implant. We choose delayed implantology when the patient’s bone requires more time to complete the osseointegration.
When the inserted implant is not yet stable and cannot stand the pressure of chewing, it is necessary to wait sometime before mounting the prosthesis. The waiting period is generally between 3 to 4 months.
How does delayed loading implantology work? After this period, a sufficient amount of bone is created around the implant, which makes it stable. With the mastication, it will be complete even the bone formation.
In this method, there is no difference in the aesthetic appearance of the teeth nor in the functionality of the prosthesis compared to the immediate loading, but it only takes longer healing times.
How does it work?
This type of implant requires two phases:
- Insertion of titanium dental implants, the closure of the gingiva with stitches, and insertion of a temporary prosthesis.
- Removal of the points and insertion of the metal pin (the dental crown base) after the osseointegration and the assembly of the final prosthesis
The only difference between the two techniques is that delayed loading implantology is always possible meanwhile, immediate loading implantology is not. The technique of deferred loading implantology isn’t better than the immediate loading. It is only a different technique to position the dental implants, but the result is the same.
