If you need an implant placed in sound bone in an easy to access area,, no more than one hour. However, if you need bone or tissue grafting along with implant it will take longer.
2 minutes

If there is only one implant being placed, it would typically be less than an hour.
For a single implant, the procedure it takes from 1 to 2 hours to place the implant, depending on how long the anesthesia takes to start working. Then you have the healing time, then you have to go back to have the healing abutment uncovered, then have the implant restored with the tooth shaped crown, so there are quite a few visits for it to be done with a high probability of success and so it looks correct as well.
Good luck.

Approximately 1-2 hrs depending on if it requires bone grafting and location.
Good luck!
A single implant? In an experienced clinician’s hands 40 mins- 1 hour.... of course could be longer in certain situations.
To put the actual implant in, maybe 10 minutes, but the whole process from beginning to end can take up to 4 months.
