In brief: Define recover

Depends on your definition of recover..
..If you mean "when can i go back to work?", the answer is the next day--you will be sore, but quite functional. If you mean "when will all pain be gone?", about 2 weeks +/-. "when will it feel like normal again?" after the implant crown is placed!

In brief: Usually 1 week but

What is your definition of recovery? Usually after this procedure the patient may have some discomfort for a few days up to a week.
However, the site will take longer to heal.

In brief: 10 days.

I am not a dentist, but based on personal experience it took me about 10 days to recover , some may take longer. But if more than 2 weeks, revisit your dentist.
