How long would you recommend to wait to have a bridge fitted following a tooth extraction?

Q.
How long can I wait to put a bridge after my tooth got extracted? It seems that the tooth next to it has moved because I felt the bump on the gum. It has been 4 months now.Thank you.
A.
I usually wait 4-6 months so you should be able to start now

    HI Can you tell me if a tooth is removed, can a bridge be fitted instantly or do you need to wait 6 months,

  2. Lucinda says:

    You usually should wait for about 6 months – a temporary bridge is often made for this interim period – obviously at a cost

    I have an number of loose teeth in my upper jaw which I need to address. Effectively, I have a bridge in the upper jaw between the two canini teeth 13to 23 with 4 pontics. Upper left teeth 24,25 & 26 are also bridged and areloose. Upper left 27 and 28 are missing. Upper right teeth 14 and 15 are also loose. Upper right teeth 16,17 and 18 are missing. All teeth numbers are per the ISO 3950 ( FDI ) numbering system. I have already approached a dentist and he suggests that I have all upper teeth removed and have 6 implants with 12 crowns. Preferably, I would like to retain the front bridge andhave implants either side with 3 crowns on each side. Should it help I havexrays of my teeth. Please advise. Best Regards
