How Long Can I Wait Before Getting a Dental Implant?
I need to extract a tooth as soon as possible due to infection. I would like to know how long I can wait to get an implant. I need to extract the tooth and have a bone graft done since I have some bone loss. How long can I wait for the implant? I was told I can get it as soon as 4-6 months. However, I would like to wait a little longer (as long as possible) so that I can save up enough to get the actual implant done. I do not want to have bone loss occur and then have to go through it again.
