I often get asked what the recovery time is for dental implants. You know, everyone's different. I think some patients can go into surgery and have it done, and the next day they're back at work. And some people take a little bit longer to recover, based on the extent of the surgery that they had, why they needed the implants, and the area of the mouth that it's performed in.

I would definitely recommend that you seek a provider who does a lot of dental implants, who can make you feel comfortable at your consultation visit, and for the most part most people are back to work the next day.
