how long should i wait after the extraction of an upper 2nd premolar before a dental implant consultation?

Right Away: It is wise to have a consultation within a week after the extraction to MAP out expected timelines and treatment options, as well as review current xrays. It is never to early to start planning. Within as early as 3 months after extraction an implant can be placed for a single tooth.
