Specialists agree that “one stage implants” are not a solution for every dental patient

Immediate load implants, known as “one stage implants” have become very popular as an option for those who want a rapid solution for missing dental pieces. These titatnium posts are placed with the respective permanent tooth in one stage, wich means that in one week (2 visits), you can leave the dentist’s office with an implant and your definitive porcelain crown. But this is not all the truth about this “one stage implants”, because they are not a solution for everyone. Immediate load implants, in fact, are the same implants specialists use in two stage procedures- when patients has to get the implants and one temporary tooth in one visit and 4 to 5 months later, return to the dental center to get the definitive crown-. The only difference between “two stage implants” and “one day implants” relies on the patient, because

depends on his or hers bone quality, the implant retention and the healing capacity of each person. “The only way to know if the patient fill the requirements is in the exact moment of the implant placement”, says Dr. Andrés Fernández, Oral and Maxillofacial specialist and partner of Dental Cosmetics Costa Rica (DCCR), which means that it is impossible to know previously to the surgery if the patient is a candidate for immediate load implants or not. “It would be wonderful if we could offer everyone an immediate load implant option, but this is not being honest with them, because you cannot know until you have seen the bone height and quality and also depends on the initial stability of the implant when

placed”, adds Dr. Alejandro Mora, Oral Rehabilitation specialist and partner of DCCR. “Also the more implants you are going to have connected to each other, the better predictability for immediate load”, explains Dr. Mora. “For example, if you get an individual implant it would have a lower success rate than two or three implants that will be connected together”, concludes.
