The tremendous success of osseointegration and predictability of implant treatment modality in the mandible prompted its investigations in the maxillary segment too for verifying whether similar success rates can be achieved. This review of literature gives us an idea about the various treatment modalities and investigations carried out by various researchers as an attempt to find out the predictability and longevity of immediate implant loading in the maxilla. The basic nomenclature, advantages and disadvantages of immediate loading, immediate loading and its relationship to osseointegration, its influence on primary stability, and micro-motion are considered and discussed. Over-emphasis has been placed on prosthodontically driven implant modality keeping the end-result and final outcome in mind. Few guidelines have been proposed that would help in the successful implementation of implant restorations.
