Whether you are missing a single tooth, multiple teeth, or are edentulous (all teeth missing), dental implants can be the next best thig to having natural teeth.
A single dental implant replaces an individual tooth that has been lost. It functions like a natural tooth and usually has a dental crown on top.
All-on-4 Implants: This procedure uses four dental implants and is done on patients who may have less available jawbone. It is a technique where a whole arch of the teeth can be supported by only 4 implants.

All-on-6 Implants: This procedure uses six dental implants and is used on patients who don’t have perfect jawbones but have enough bone to support multiple implants. A bridge in the form of an arch is used to support the artificial teeth.
All-on-8 Implants: This procedure uses eight dental implants and is one of the most stable options. Since it involves the highest number of dental implants, it has the strongest grip on the jaw. The patient’s jaw needs to have enough bone to sustain these eight implants.

This depends on the amount of work you are having done. Here are some general time frames:
