How long does dental implant surgery take?
Dental implant surgery can involve a variety of different procedures, from simply having an implant put in to having multiple implants put in, or an extraction of a tooth followed by an implant, or a bone graft with the implant. For the placement of one implant without an extraction of a tooth or bone graft, a patient is usually scheduled for 1 hour. Most of this time will be used for paper work and local anesthesia (getting numb). It is likely that it will only take 40 minutes or so. If more needs to be done, the patient will be scheduled for 1 hour to an hour and a half.
