For dental implants to be placed effectively they require sufficient bone. The bone must be of good quality and quantity in order for the dental implants to be stable, secure, and effective.
Generally speaking, the human lower jaw has tougher and denser bone compared to the upper jaw which usually has softer bone.
Once a tooth is removed, the bone in the tooth socket starts to remodel and resorb. After several months, there can be a lot of bone loss in the tooth socket caused by the loss of that tooth.
The ideal time for implant placement is around 6-8 weeks after tooth extraction. At this point the soft tissue has healed, however, most of the bone is still intact. This waiting time also allows any infection to clear up.
