Re: how soon can i get a bridge after tooth extraction?
DON'T put a bridge there! I have learnt it the hard way and that was the biggest mistake I will forever regret. You would be sacrificing two good teeth for one, and a three unit bridge on front just doesn't look good and natural. Plus, if not done right, your two adjacent teeth could lead to cavity, root canals, loss etc....
If you don't have the money to put in an implant now, go to a periodontist soon and ask to put in some bone graft material at the extraction site to reduce the amount of substantial bone loss. It should only cost a few hundreds for the procedure. Then when have the money, you can reconsider putting an implant. I know implant is not cheap, but I can tell you, with just one tooth missing, it is definitely cheaper and better for your general dental health in the long run.
