I need an implant but am concerned this will affect my IVF treatment. What should I do?

Q. Hello, I havea failed root canal which has already been re rooted twice. I imagine I will need an extraction very soon (visiting dentist tomo) – and then an implant etc. However, I am due to start IVF treatment in a month and am concerned about the dental treatments and x rays needed if I pursue the implant route. If I leave the tooth extracted – and no implant or bone graft for 12-14 months, is this going to be a problem? Also, what is the risk of dry socket with extraction? This terrifies me! Thanks,,
A. might be a problem as you could get bone resorption over that period of time. try and get the implant placed before you conceive and then it can wait until you are finished IVF until restoring
