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 more

How long do I have to waite  after i get a tooth pulled to eat normal food? It was the one on my right fourth from the front

2d: No hot/spicy: When you eat after an extraction food will inevitably get into the socket where a blood clot is protecting the bone. Hot, or spicy foods may irritate the area to the degree that the clot may be lost resulting in a very painful "dry socket" that will take 3x longer to heal. More important is not to rinse vigorously or brush the area for 2 days until the clot stabilizes. If sutures: nothing sharp. ...Read more

After having my tooth pulled how long will it take to quit bleeding?

After having my tooth pulled how long will it take to quit bleeding?

A couple hours: Bleeding and oozing are different. Blood in saliva amplifies the appearance of bleeding. Keep pressure on the area, only replacing the gauze hourly. Do not keep looking at it, touching it. The constant pressure is the key. You can also try biting on warm moist tea bag which has tanic acid which can help. If you are concerned still after a few hours, call your dental provider. Pressure! ...Read more

Tooth extraction: how long does it take to fully heal?

3 to 6 months: Healing starts the day the tooth is removed, but it takes a while for gum to cover the socket where the tooth was, and for bone to fill in the hole underneath the gum. Often, an x-ray will show the outline of where the tooth was for years after the extraction because teeth are surrounded by a dense layer of bone. ...Read more

How long should it take to heal for elderly (88years old) tooth extraction?

No exact answer: First, no presence of medical conditions, if any were mentioned. Secondly, no mention of infection, which tooth, easy or difficult extraction, etc. Basically, we have very little information to go on. Finally, what is meant by "healing"?
