how long does tooth extraction, bone graft, and implant take?

Usually 90-120 mins: A periodontist or oral surgeon who places implants routinely all day long can usually do the procedures described in about 60 - 120 minutes, bearing no other concerns and not counting time for anesthesia. However, there are many situations where the extraction and bone graft is done on one day, then allowed to heal several weeks, then the implant placed at another appointment.
