Background: The evolution in implant procedures has helped decrease loading times. Procedures can be optimized in post-extraction implantation with immediate loading. With a decrease in periodical needs for oral rehabilitation, the biological impact and psychological integration may be improved. This study aims to compare immediate versus delayed loading in post-extraction implantation. Materials and Methods: In a private practice of two practitioners, 170 Straumann post-extraction implants (107 immediate and 63 delayed loading) were tracked during a 7-year period. Results: According to Misch criteria, no difference in success rates was found between immediate (96.4%) and delayed (96.8%) loading in post-extraction implants. Conclusion: This retrospective study showed that a post-extraction procedure does not compromise immediate loading success in the short and medium term. Complementary prospective and randomized studies are necessary to validate these results.
