  • How Soon Can You Get Implants After Having A Tooth Pulled Out?

    Obviously you won’t want to live with a gap in your smile for long.

If not, you will be advised how long you will need to wait. In most instances, if you have sufficient healthy jaw bone and no underlying dental or health problems, you may be able to have the implant post placed within 2 weeks of your extraction.
