Immediate loading of dental implants can reduce treatment time and management concerns, thus increasing patient acceptance. This paper reports the authors' preliminary experience with partially edentulous patients having received non-occlusally loaded provisional restorations within 24 hours of surgery, compared to patients treated according to an early loading protocol. The present data suggest that implant supported fixed partial prostheses can be immediately non-occlusally loaded and restored with a predictability similar to early loaded implants.
