How soon after a tooth extraction can I have something put in to replace it? I need to have a tooth pulled, but want to go as short a time as possible with a gap in my teeth. How long will the spot where my tooth was have to heal before I can get somethin

Sometimes

Sometimes an extracted tooth can be replaced immediately after an extraction. More often than not, it is better to wait until the bone has filled in either partially or completely before placing an implant. There are a lot of factors to consider for example, the amount of remaining bone, whether or not there was an infection present, the type or hardness of the bone, the position of your remaining teeth, whether or not the extracted tooth is a lower or upper tooth and whether or not it is a front or back tooth. Each case has to be evaluated individually and I would suggest that you discuss this with your dentist in order to make an intelligent decision as to when to replace that missing tooth.

Can you get a canker sore after a tooth extraction?

????

Canker_sore
YES, but the extraction is NOT the cause of the canker sore. The virus that causes the sores is IN your system. The extraction just "stresses" the body to react to the virus.

How long after tooth extraction can i get an implant?

6 months

Dental
A general rule of thumb is 6 months, some cases as early as 3 months. Gum tissue is ok at 8-12 week mark for a bridge, but implants need mature bone for stability. Some cases can be done within 6 weeks, but usually a longer implant than what was extracted is placed (using bone BEYOND the original missing tooth for stability).

Dr. Michael E. Ein answered:

Is it normal to get lock jaw after a tooth extraction?

Not lock jaw

Jaw
Lock jaw is a lay term for tetanus. You do not get tetanus from a tooth extraction. You can get infection of the tooth root or have a piece of infected retained root that can cause swelling of the surrounding soft tissues making it difficult to fully open your mouth. This should not normally occur after a tooth extraction. See your dentist

No

Head-teeth
Morphine is not normally administered in a dental setting. Tooth extraction pain is not that severe.

Wisdom

Not likely. I have never heard of this post extraction. DVT is from lack of movement and dehydration.

Is it ok to get a tooth extraction before a root canal filling?

? unclear

Dental_consult
I'm not clear on what your question is or why you are asking it? If a tooth is deemed hopeless it needs to be extracted. Many teeth can be saved with RCT if restorable & the long term prognosis is good. Once the tooth is extracted it's gone! and no other treatment is possible other than replacing it. It sounds like you need to discuss your situation with your own dentist as well as your options.
