    Is it true that if a tooth that needs to be extracted was infected, the healing process from getting it pulled will be harder? There is barely any swelling and little to no pus

    Not really. In most circumstances healing will be about the same.

    Depends on overall health status, in a healthy person the healing times will be the same. Add lets say, uncontrolled Diabetes the healing times will change dramatically

    I haven't encountered anyone with uncontrolled diabetes. Certainly something to ask about, but most people are well aware of the importance of good control.

    Then you are lucky, I have had several with a sugar range from 6-700. Got them to them to the ER. I take blood sugar on certain patients prior to extractions. It has saved me from some bad potential outcomes
