This can vary from patient to patient, as each case is different. The procedure itself usually takes about 1-2 hours for each implant being placed. Depending on the extent of your procedure, typically the full process can last anywhere from six to eight months and two surgical procedures.
A few factors to take into account that can change the scope of the procedure:
• overall dental health
• the teeth that are being replaced
• how many teeth are being replaced
• whether a tooth extraction will be required
The overall timespan of the procedure is reliant on the healing process. Once the implant has been placed, the jawbone must heal and grow around the implant to secure it in place which can take three to six months.
There are cases where the latest dental implant technology has made it possible to extract teeth and place implants with crowns in one visit.
