With the use of high tech planning, a surgical guide (think of it as GPS for your implant) and an experienced dentists, most implants placed at 5 Minute Implants only take about 5 minutes, often less.
Not only are 5 Minute Implants fast, but due to the use of technology, they are also extremely safe and very minimally invasive. Most patients resume normal activities within a few hours after the procedure.
With the use of the highest levels of dental technology, 5 Minute Implants are placed within a 0.50mm accuracy level. This means a much higher success rate, and better aesthetics and functionality.
Frequently asked questions
Does it really only take 5 minutes? Most implant procedure visits usually last 45-60 minutes, but this includes a chat with the doc, numbing, implant procedure, x-rays afterwards and follow up discussion. The implant procedure however, really does only take about 5 minutes!
Faster doesn't usually mean safer?
Normally faster does not mean safer; speed does not equal quality. Normally that's the case. But 5 Minute Implants was actually a result of finding the safest and most precise implant placement method possible. Our team actually spends considerably more time before the surgery, planning the implant placement, and that's what allows the implant to be done in 5 minutes.
Do I get a tooth the same day?No. Generally speaking, putting a tooth on the implant the same day of the implant procedure creates a significantly higher failure rate. Like everything else we do, we want the safest and most predictable outcome so we wait for three months to "restore," or add the tooth.
Do all implants only take 5 minutes?Absolutely not. Again, we approach every implant with the utmost care. Some cases require more time for a multitude of reasons; additional bone grafting, slower drilling due to dense bone, additional verification x-rays during the procedures for tight spots, etc. Despite being named 5 Minute Implants, we never rush surgeries. But most simple, single tooth implants, normally take 5 minutes or less.
Why wait 3 months for the tooth?
If you dig a hole in the ground to put a new fence post in, you have to wait for the cement to dry before attaching the fence panel, otherwise it will just fall over. Same concept. On a microscopic level, your bone actually grows in to the implants. This "integration" takes about 90 days.
Does your office provide crowns?Yes! Not only do we offer implant crowns, but we are one of the only dental offices in the entire state of Texas that is capable of milling our own titanium custom abutments.
Are you a full service dental office?
5 Minute Implants specializes in dental implants, implant dentures, All-on-Fours and full mouth rehab cases. However, our "sister locations" Arte Dental offer a complete dental service.

Meet the man
THE FIVE MINUTE
Dr William Nguyen attended dental school at Temple's College of Dentistry of Philadephia from 2004-2008. After getting in the groove of family and cosmetic dentistry, Dr. Nguyen desired to partake in implant dentsitry. After countless countinuing education courses, studies, etc, he took the leap in to implant dentistry in 2011. As he sought to master implant placement, technology continued to develop as well. During a study course, Dr. Nguyen saw the potential in various technological breakthroughs; 3D CAT scans, intra-oral 3D imaging, surgical guide virtual planning software and 3D printing. He thought it only made sense to implement them all in one location, to provide a more streamlined and comfotable setting for his implant patients. The result, was the 5 Minute Implant technique.
