Normal healing: The tissue and bone should heal without incident. The area may be filled-in with grafting material. This may also be called site or ridge preservation. After the area heals, it is common to place another implant and try again. Check for why it failed. Often it is load / occlusion (bite) related. Also, systemic problems -- diabetes. Smoking can be a factor. Don't give up. See a specialist.
