How Long Do Dental Implants Take?
After my research on the appointment and operation time, I concluded that it must depend on the implant procedure you are interested in. However, I was surprised to learn that for many of these procedures, there is a very short waiting period, the operating time is very short, and short recovery time fair.
Here is a list of some of the dental implant procedures is very common:

Single-tooth implant – For single tooth replacement. The insertion of single titanium dental implants followed by the attachment of a single crown.
Fixed-Bridge Implants – For two or more missing teeth. Involves the insertion of two dental implants that are spread over two, three, or four teeth. This is followed by the attachment of a fixed bridge that includes two, three, or four teeth.
Over-dentures – Almost like the All-on-Four ™ choice but to use two implants instead of four, and they can be removed with the help of a dental professional. For people who have lost all or most of their teeth.
Most of the dental implant procedure is done in two stages. The first, after the initial consultation, is the insertion of titanium dental implant into the jaw bone of the patient.
For some treatments, this can involve as many as four dental implants. Having had enough time to jaw to receive and combine with bio-compatible titanium implants, it is time for the next step.
