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.

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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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"?
