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. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

The steroid injection may have been a diagnostic and / or therapeutic injection but does not affect ( by itself) timing for surgery... Good luck! ...Read more
