Rehabilitating the Failing Dentition: Full-Arch Immediate Placement, Immediate Load Therapy – Functional Esthetics & Restorative Dentistry

ABSTRACT: Implants have become an important component of the dental armamentarium. Implants have customarily been installed and remained unloaded for a period of time in order to promote bone attachment to the surface.Multiple surgeries and provisionals were required, resulting in additional treatment time and costs. More recently, however, full-arch immediate placement, immediate load therapy has presented a new alternative. Eliminating the problems associated with serial extractions and full dentures, immediate loading also has the added benefit of allowing the patient to go from a failing dentition to a repaired one within 48 hours. The purpose of this article is to establish a rationale and protocol for rehabilitating the failing dentition utilizing an immediate load approach.
