Instant implants, or immediate load dental implants are designed specially to be able to be loaded right after implantation. This means no healing time, once the dental implant is inserted, it can be used to bite and chew immediately after the anesthetic has worn off. This of course raises many questions in patient’s minds; what is that structural difference that makes this possible? Is it worth it? Are there any consequences? With this article, I aim to explain a little bit about how these implants work, and how they are different from regular dental implants.
