How long should one wait from the time a tooth is removed, until the implant work is done?

How long is the wait between the installation of the post and the crown attached? ... Visitor from HI

Implant surgery at the time of extraction is best. No bone has resorbed and treatment expenses can actually be a lot lower since the implant surgery protocols can be implemented, for most patients, immediately after the extraction.

Implant surgery can be done nearly at any time, but the longer the delay, typically, the more the bone tissue in the extraction site will resorb or disappear.

Once the implant is seated and full osseointegrated with adjacent bone tissue, a tooth restoration is usually placed.... which is about a 4 month time period. Temporary crowns however, can often be used for a special immediate load implant to avoid the toothless look while everything heals. The temporary crown is taken out of occlusion to protect the implant site.

Obviously there are many different choices...each with different "steps" to be followed... but the process is similar across all types of traditional implants.

See your implant dentist or implant periodontist for more treatment details.
