Immediate restoration in the sense of immediate implantation and immediate loading.
This treatment method avoids longer periods of toothlessness or temporary restorations and shortens the duration of treatment. Tooth removal and immediate implant placement are performed in a single treatment step in just one session.
The basic prerequisites for immediate implant placement are good jaw bone quality and sufficient bone substance to allow the implant to be firmly anchored in the jaw bone. This required primary stability can be measured by the dentist during the procedure using a torque ratchet.
Immediately after the extraction of a tooth, the implant is placed in the jawbone like an artificial tooth root. A crown or prosthesis is placed immediately on top of the implant, which cannot be fully loaded for approximately 6-8 weeks and is protected from overloading by a temporary denture. If, however, the primary stability corresponds, immediate loading can take place and offer the patient full chewing stability immediately. The healing (osseointegration) of the dental implant in the jawbone is facilitated by the good quality of the primary stability.
By means of a special implant system that is precisely matched to the jawbone and has a perfect screw geometry, an optimal immediate restoration is guaranteed.
There are further advantages in favour of the immediate restoration treatment method. These are of a medical nature and prevent bone resorption and a recession of the soft tissue, while the aveolar process remains intact. The aveolar process in the upper and lower jaw carries the tooth compartments (aveoles). The space created in the jawbone is immediately filled with the dental implant and possibly also with bone material or bone substitute material. The gums regain their correct shape with the implant. In contrast, with late implantation the gum, which has healed after weeks, must be opened again for implantation.
