Titanium dental implant and bone healing

Aug 7, 2013
I'm a 24 years old girl.

I about a month ago I had 4 molar teeth removed in my lower jaw as they were completly rotten. I would like to have fixed Dental Implants put in their place.

For now there is only empty place were these 4 teeth were and I did not put any bridges or dentures in their place.

I would like to know how long it would take after the removel of the
teeth before the bone structure starts to shrink and how long I
can wait before I must get the fixed Dental Implants?

Economically I can't afford implants right now :(

I spoke with a local dentist and he said that it usally takes a year before the healing begins and becouse I'm that young there is no need for me to be in a hurry.

Is that true or should I be in a hurry???

I can the send x-ray image to whomever wants to see it
