2 weeks: I tell patients to wait at least 2 weeks after extractions prior to any other dental work that is not emergent.

It varies.: It's best to avoid chewing things that break up into sharp, hard pieces until the hole completely closes. Other than that, i would stay away from chewing in the area at least until the stitches, if any, are removed.

For some runners and people who do heavy workouts that may be as long a 7 to 10 days. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
6 months: 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). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Depends: There are times where an implant is placed at the same time as the extraction. This is called an immediate placement. The more traditional way is to allow the socket to heal in with bone then place the implants. That takes anywhere from 3-4 months after extraction. Which method used depends on the tooth, anatomy, and surgeon's experiences with implants there are pros and cons to both. ...Read moreSee 6 more doctor answers
