Pikos Symposium 2019

Immediate Functional Loading as a Foundation for Bone Formation in the Rehabilitation of the Edentulous Jaws

Immediate loading of dental implants is a well-established protocol in the edentulous mandible but still clinicians do not use this treatment protocol on a routine basis. The presentation demonstrates the basic principles of bone healing as well as the effects of loading forces on the cell signaling mechanisms as the main requirement in order to achieve successful clinical results. Various clinical protocols using different implant designs as well as advanced surgical protocols will provide scientific information and the evidence about the options and limits of immediate functional loading for daily practice.

Learning Objectives:
• To understand the main mechanism of bone formation under loading conditions
• To develop clinical protocols on immediate loading demonstrating long-term success
• To emphasize how to avoid surgical and prosthetic complications
