Shortly: Anywhere between 1-4 weeks. And it depends on what you classify as "healed.".

Tooth Pulled: A tooth socket should heal in two - three weeks after the tooth is pulled. Gargling with salt water should help keep the socket clean, until the hole closes. If the socket has not closed after four weeks, see your dentist.
