Abstract Synopsis

”IMMEDIATE, EARLY AND DELAYED IMPLANT LOADING: THE SCIENTIFIC
EVIDENCE ”

Assoc. Prof. Dr. Marco Esposito

ABSTRACT

After a brief introduction about scientific methodology, a systematic review presenting the clinical
results of immediate, early and delayed loading will be presented to help clinicians to decide if and
when to implement immediate loading procedures. Some examples of recent randomised controlled
trials with videos of the implemented procedures will also be presented to better understand the
impressive capacity of the bone to support implant-supported restorations.
