Question:
If you are getting an implant in the front of your mouth, do you have to go without a tooth until you get your permanent tooth?

Is it possible to have a tooth pulled and have the screw put in on the same day? ... Visitor from Staten Island

Answer:
Most "accomplished" dentists make sure none of their patients have the "toothless look", which essentially represents a testimonial to the technologies they have on hand to provide a patient "exactly" what is wanted.

Some implants can, indeed, be placed immediately after an extraction..... others cannot. The primary determinant is "bone quality and quantity" at the moment, along with whatever implant technologies the dentist uses.

If a large quantity of bone graft material is required.... it may probably require an additional 2-3 months for the bone graft to be fully osseointegrated with the adjacent jaw bone.

In these sitations, a "flipper" can be used which provide a cosmetic solution for creating a tooth. It is for "looks only." Flippers should be removed while eating. They are designed to protect the underlying healing tissues.

In other situations, implants can be placed WITH bone graft material.

With the right dentist, you do not have to be toothless.

Here is an example of a "special flipper" that an implant dentist uses for his patients:
