    Tooth Pulled / Healing Process?
    Had a Tooth Pulled or What was left after the Crown / Cap broke.. What was left was Anchored pretty good.. Took the Prescribed Meds to Kill any possible Infection, All is Good.. Obviously one has to be careful eating and avoid chomping down.. My Query is , How long should / will it take for the Hole left to fill in?

    My oral surgeon says to gently brush the spot (unless it's beet red) to encourage growth of gum, a direction another responder here disagrees with every time it comes up.
    And of course vigorous swishing of salt water to make sure tiny food particles aren't in the hole.
    Mine take 3 - 4 weeks, but I have so much other pain that adding more pain keeps all pain going, so it seems to linger.
