How long does it take to replace a missing tooth?

The time it takes to replace a missing tooth with dental implants can vary depending on the individual patient's unique needs and the complexity of their case. In general, the single implant placement procedure can take as little as four minutes, with no recovery time needed. After all that is complete, your dentist will place a false tooth on top of the implant and you'll have a new, beautiful smile. The total time is different from patient to patient, but you can typically expect the entire process to take from 5 to 8 months.
