Varies...: Depending on which teeth, pathology, amount of bone, etc. In certain circumstances the implants can be immediately placed, while other times a bone graft is required and it will take three to six months for the site to fill in with vital bone. Since each situation is different, no one answer can apply to you. Ask your dentist or oral surgeon re: your surgery.
