Discuss with dentist: Every case, every patient, every dentist results in different time frames. There are so many factors at play here. Only a dentist who is familiar with your case can give you the answer you request. Generally, implants are placed on visit #1; time required for integration = 3 to 6 months; implants uncovered and restored =2 to 3 weeks. If bone grafting or other issues, more time may be required.

4 to 6 months: You can typically have dental implants placed in the area of #'s 3 and 14 within four to six months of the extractions, particularly if a ridge preservation graft was applied at the time of the extractions. Full dental restoration may require an additional couple of months following the placement of the implants.

Depends: If there is adequate jaw bone volume present at both sites and you are healthy then the dental implants can be placed right away. If bone grafting is required then a healing time period for the bonegraft can take 4-6 months. After this the dental implants can be placed. Good luck. You will do fine.
