Effect of immediate functional loading on osseointegration of implants used for single tooth replacement. A human histological study
Clinical Oral Implants Research, 05/10/2012
Donati M et al. – It is suggested that immediate loading of implants does not influence the osseointegration process, whereas the density of newly formed peri–implant bone at such sites appears to be increased in relation to unloaded control implants. The use of an osteotome preparation technique during installation results in damage of peri–implant bone and enhances the risk for failure in osseointegration.
