Is a dental implant, ie the metal bit, usually fitted immediately after removal of the tooth or is it done at a later date. The info online describes the procedural steps but I can't find any that describes the precise time line.

Usually 3 months later when bone has had a chance to heal and an assessment can be made. Then another 3 months before you put the real crown on top.
