How Soon After an Extraction Can I Get a Dental Implant?

Learn the optimal timing for dental implants after extraction with Dr. Amelia Aristodemo in this patient education video.

After a tooth extraction, it is generally recommended to wait a minimum of two to three months before proceeding with a dental implant. This waiting period is crucial for allowing your mouth to heal adequately from the extraction. Healing time can vary based on individual factors, including the complexity of the extraction and the patient’s overall health and ability to heal.

During the healing process, the extraction site undergoes changes that prepare it for the placement of an implant. This includes the formation of new bone and the healing of gum tissue, both of which are essential for the stable integration of the implant into the jaw.

If you’re considering a dental implant following a tooth extraction, a free consultation in our office can provide you with valuable insights. During this consultation, we can evaluate the extraction site to determine if it has healed sufficiently for a mini implant. We’ll also discuss the next steps, potential timelines, and any other treatments that might be necessary to ensure the best outcome for your dental implant.

Please give us a call to schedule your consultation. We’re here to guide you through the process and help you make informed decisions about your dental health.
