How Long Does the Dental Implant Procedure Take?

In this video, Dr. Chris Powell explains how quickly a mini dental implant is placed with minimal pain and a quick return to daily activities.

People often ask how long it takes to place a mini dental implant. With our thorough digital workup, we can typically place a mini dental implant in about 20 minutes. Pain is generally not a significant factor, and most patients can return to work the same day or the next day. The procedure is quick and efficient, so you won’t need to spend the entire day at the clinic. In fact, it can be done almost within a lunch break.
