How soon after extraction/bone grafting can an implant be done?

The oral surgeon who extracted the molar (and did bone grafting) in May said the implant could be done in October. A dentist thinks it can be done as early as July - says there is advanced technology to make this possible. I'm confused.

Wait till Ocotober for a more assured result. You don't want to take any risks just to save a bit of time.

You had additional bone grafting done. Sometimes the oral surgeon needs to make sure that the procedure was successful before placing the implant. Follow the advice of your oral surgeon.
