Suggestions on placing an implant in lower left first molar?

Last Updated January 11, 2016

The lower left first molar was extracted 1-month prior due to bone loss. I would like to install an implant in the extraction site. I have 10mm buccolingual width and 10mm available vertical bone height. Should I wait until the extraction socket completely heals and then install the implant? Or can I install the implant now and do a bone graft at the time of implant installation? Suggestions?
