Abstract

Clinical dentistry has been subjected to a revolution by introduction of “Osseo integrated” dental implants. New trends have always been of keen interest in “implant prosthodontics”. The aim behind this systematic review was to assimilate the outcomes of “immediately” & “conventionally” loaded implants. To do so a detailed electronic search was performed on PubMed, Science Direct & Research gate to identify pertinent articles published between 2000 to 2021. After detailed scrutiny, six studies met the preset eligibility criteria & hence were shortlisted for this project. As far as the results were concerned, no remarkable difference was seen between the success of “immediately” & “conventionally” loaded implant groups. There was no remarkable difference in marginal bone levels, masticatory efficiency, bleeding on probing, implant stability quotients, peri-implant soft tissue contours among both the groups provided that immediately loaded implants had significant primary stability. In selected patients “immediate loading protocol” can successfully be practiced ensuring that adequate primary implant stability has been achieved.
