Should I put the implant in right after tooth extraction (it has infection) or wait for some time for bone to heal? (Photo)

2 ways of doing this,
option1, clindamycine 300 mg , for 8 days, previous to the extortion, and you can place the implant, because when the tooth is extracted, the bone socket is cleaned, and also the drill goes more deep, so all the infection will be trespassed, (if there is something remaining). also, when the tooth is extracted, all the anaerobic microorganisms, will be dead ,once the air touch them, so a good cleaning, and a good expert in implants can handle it,
option2, do the extraction, bone cleaning, and wait for the healing process, at least 2 months, and later on, it will be ready for implant setting.
Wait for implant
All the best,
Implant now or later
