Immediate loading of dental implants has been defined as a situation where the superstructure is attached to the implants at time of the surgery or however no later than 72 hours after surgery. Micromovements have been deeply studied in dental implants loading but the question of reduction of micromovements has not been addressed in controlled studies dealing with immediate loading of oral implants. Passive fit of provisional prostheses has been mentioned as an important factor in the osseointegration of immediately loaded implants. The ultimate goal of an immediate loading protocol is to reduce the number of surgical interventions and shorten the time frame between surgery and prosthetic delivery, all without sacrificing implant success rates. Aim of this study was to evaluate the use of a new titanium abutments for screw retained prosthesis in edentulous patients in an immediate loading procedure in order to reduct the number of surgical steps.


KEY WORDS: Dental implants - Osseointegration - Titanium
