How Long Does a Dental Implant Procedure Take?

If you’re thinking about having dental implant surgery, you should know approximately how long the process could take before you even schedule your surgery. Like with most operations, the time it takes for the entire dental implant procedure to progress from your initial consultation to your procedure to your healing and recovery is variable. It depends on the type of surgery you require, your overall oral health, and whether or not you will need grafting or tooth extractions.

A general dental implant procedure timeline is as follows:

1. Consultation

Your consultation could take anywhere from 45 minutes to an hour. It gives you a chance to talk with your dentist about your options, ask your questions about the upcoming procedure, and see if implants are a good option for you. The dentist will ask about your overall health and talk with you about your specific dental needs. They may give you a 3D CT scan to decide if you’re a good candidate for the procedure and to tailor a treatment plan.

2. Impressions

After your initial consultation, if both you and your dentist decide you should go ahead with the treatment plan, they’ll next take some impressions of your jaw and teeth. Usually, this is around a week or two after your consultation. At this time, you may also talk about what to expect after dental implant surgery.

3. Extractions

While not all cases require tooth extraction, you could need one or several. The dentist will let you know if they need to extract any teeth. This part of the procedure can vary in its own. If you have healthy bone, you might be able to have your implant procedure done the same day the dentist removes your natural tooth. But, this isn’t always the case for individuals suffering from infection or bone loss. If this is the case with you, you may require bone grafting.

4. Bone Grafting

You may require bone grafting not only if you had a tooth extracted, but also if you’ve been missing a tooth or teeth for a while. Bone grafting will ensure you have a decent bone foundation available for your dental implant to adhere to. So, if you’re missing teeth, this stage is important. Usually, there are several months of healing time between a bone graft and dental implant surgery.

5. Implant Surgery

Once the dentist completes the preparations above, they’ll schedule your dental implant procedure. During the operation, the dentist inserts your implants into your bone. Depending on what’s ideal for you, they’ll either submerge the implant in your gum or not submerge it.
