  • It really depends on the amount of bone that is available to place an implant in the area. Sometimes, an implant can be placed the same day the tooth is extracted. If the implant is placed separately from the extraction and bone graft, it will take about 3 months for the bone to be ready to receive an implant. Typically, it's about 3 months from the placement of the implant that the implant can be restored with a crown.

  • Like many things, it can vary.
    The physical process of placing a single dental implant takes about one hour.

    You then need to let the placed dental implant heal while the bone fuses around your new implant. That can take about 4-6 months or longer, depending on your overall oral health and the amount and strength of bone around that tooth.
