immediate load dental implant

It is often asked can dental implants placed for a front tooth be loaded immediately (i.e. crown placed at the same time of implant placement). In a recent conference by the International Team of Implantology, they evaluated research articles comparing immediate load and delayed load dental implants. It was shown that implants loaded immediate had the same long term success and esthetics as delayed loaded implants. However, immediate load implants must be stable at the time of placement for the success to be the same. Therefore, if there is no bone, the implant will not work.
