Press-fit implants can be used to meet the prosthetic needs of patients who require immediate loading of their implants. This procedure may be necessary because of a patient's unwillingness and/or inability to tolerate a removable prosthesis. The implants reported in this study had a similar success rate to those immediately loaded screw-type implants previously reported by others. The lack of large numbers of long-term immediately loaded implants dictates the need for detailed informed consent when using immediately loaded cylinder implants for dental reconstruction.
