In conventional implants, after removing the tooth , the bone is allowed to heal for a few months before placing the implants. After dental implant installation ,there will be a waiting period of a few months to allow osseointergration before the final implant crown or bridge can be done. This original protocol for implant placement was advocated by Branemark , who is widely regarded as the founding father of modern implant dentistry.

Disadvantage :

long treatment time . Patients have to wait a longer time before getting their implant teeth for eating
