How long does tooth extraction, bone graft, and implant take?

Usually 90-120 mins. A periodontist or oral surgeon who places implants routinely all day long can usually do the procedures described in about 60 - 120 minutes, bearing no other concerns and not counting time for anesthesia. However, there are many situations where the extraction and bone graft is done on one day, then allowed to heal several weeks, then the implant placed at another appointment.
This process. Can take several months so a retainer with a replacement tooth is often necessary.
Depends. Bone graft healing depends on the type of bone defect you begin with. The more bony walls you have to graft to at the start, the better the success and the shorter the healing period. Implants can take from 3-4 months to heal or longer if placed within the sinus.

Is my dentist pushing me to get a bone graft/implant after my tooth extraction for the money? Or is it absolutely necessary?

If. If the area where the tooth was removed is compromised, bone graft/implant/crown may be the best "fix." Yes, it's expensive, but it''s worth the time, effort, and money. Generally missing teeth should be replaced. To not do so results in additional tooth loss over time. Not being able to examine you I would recommend that you get a second opinion if you don't have a trusting relationship. Read more...
2nd opinion. If you are uncertain, get a second opinion -- see a specialist - the Prosthodontist. In most cases, an implant is the optimum treatment for a lost/missing tooth - especially in someone your age with their whole life ahead and the need for function, esthetics, and bone preservation. Good Luck. Read more...
28 Teeth. Forgetting your wisdom teeth, you should have 28 other healthy, functioning teeth (or replacements). If teeth are not replaced, the other teeth will shift resulting in an uneven bite, periodontal problems, and esthetic issues. It will cost more to correct later than now. The advice your dentist gave you is sound and correct, and follows the standard of care. The choice is yours. Read more...

Define recover. Depends on your definition of recover....If you mean "when can i go back to work?", the answer is the next day--you will be sore, but quite functional.

10 minutes. Typically oral surgeons can do this quickly and easily as they do it every day. Often instead of grafting they can place an implant in the socket which the process and reduces cost. I schedule these surgeries for 10 minutes plus time for local anesthesia if the patient will be awake. This includes the implant. I do lots of them, close to 1000 per year so i may be a little faster than some. Read more...

How long after teeth extraction/bone graft on left and implant on right side can you safely eat more than liquid or soft food.?

Eating solid food . If implants are submerged or bone level the soft tissue will grow over them in couple of days during the healing process and you will be able to resume eating your regular food . Right now avoid hard and spicy food.Please follow the instructions given to you after the surgery. Read more...
USUALLY 4-7 DAYS . Generally, gently brushing over the area and rinsing with warm salt water starting the day after the surgery usually keeps the area pretty clean. Typically, the patients can gradually advance their diets to a normal diet by the 4-7 day, depending on how they feel. Read more...
Depends on surgery. It really depends on the nature of the surgeries. If the extraction is healing normally, it is probably safer to eat on that side rather than where an implant was placed. I prefer not to work on both sides of the mouth at the same time, for this reason. It is nice to give a patient one side for function. Sometimes, active infections do not allow this approach and caution is indicated. Read more...
It depends. The best thing to do is to wait for the tissue to completely close over the wound to be sure the area is sealed. You can check on this yourself. Depending on the difficulty of the extraction and your body's healing this can take a few days or over a week. The wound closure is the most important factor. If bone particles were used, they can shift even after the tissue is closed. Be careful! Read more...
Include Fresh Juices. Many soft food choices are nutritionally sound. Most cannot match the vitamins and minerals found in fresh veggies and some fruits. These can be a challenge right after surgery. I suggest taking advantage of the popular trend of drinking green juices. Adding apple and carrot can make them more palatable. They are nutrient dense and can support tissue healing. Read more...

Can a radiograph still show the presence of placed bone grafting material into socket following tooth extraction one year earlier with no implant?

Probably not. After a year's time, the grafting material would have been resorbed and replaced by your own, living bone. In many instances the outline of the tooth socket can still be seen. The density of the new bone and the older, surrounding bone would be about the same. Read more...
