Endosseous implants have provided clinicians with highly predictable solutions to patient problems. The paradigms originally associated with implant placement and subsequent restoration have evolved considerably over the past several decades of the expanding body of evidence-based advice that has been assembled. This thought- provoking session will touch on immediate versus delayed loading for single and multiple implants and differences between placements in the maxillary and mandibular arches and in anterior and posterior locations. The focus will be on the question: When should one load an implant? An algorithm for the risks of immediate loading will be presented.
- Identify situations in which the outcomes of immediate loading are predictable.
- List the situations that favour delayed loading.
- Summarize the risk/benefits of immediate loading in the maxilla versus the mandible.
