MONJE GIL, F. et al. Immediate loading of implants in the maxilla. Rev Esp Cirug Oral y Maxilofac [online]. 2007, vol.29, n.4, pp.215-227. ISSN 1130-0558.
Immediate loading in the mandible has been introduced into clinical practice taking first place and, and because of the characteristics of the bone, this is carried out following a protocol. However, in the maxilla there is no scientific evidence for routinely carrying this out. This is because the maxilla, in general, has a lower bone mass density. Moreover, in the maxilla various densities may coexist (according to Mischs classification) in the same individual. In addition, given the anatomic characteristics of the maxilla (lip and palate resorption), axial alignment can be carried out, but implant parallelism is difficult.16,17 The aim of this paper is to analyze the scientific information that we have at our disposal in order to confirm whether immediate loading in the maxilla is possible. For this we will study various aspects of immediate loading in the maxilla: Overdentures Fixed complete prostheses Fixed partial prostheses Fixed single tooth prostheses Prosthetic requirements Contraindications
