Yes. The military pulled 6 teeth at once. It took about a year for the hole to close up.


After a dental extraction, it takes a few weeks for the gums to heal. But it takes at least three months for the bone to heal.


Get some CoQ10 (a vitamin supplement). CoQ10 works miracles helping mouth tissues to heal. Ideally, buy some 100Mg CoQ10 softgels and take four a day, spread out across the day. CoQ10 is found in cells throughout the body, but it is found in highest concentration in gum/mouth tissue cells. I take it 100Mg to 200Mg daily, but when I have any dental work planned I ramp-up the amount a couple of weeks in advance and continue until it has healed.

I learned about CoQ10 years ago, prior to having all four of my impacted wisdom teeth extracted. I took it prior to, and following their removal. When I went back to the dentist for a follow-up visit, the dentist remarked that he'd never seen anyone heal so quickly. I'm convinced the CoQ10 supplementation was responsible for my quick recovery.

My father had a very similar result - very quick healing following dental work and CoQ10 supplementation.

Wisdom tooth extraction?

A surgical extraction of a wisdom tooth (or teeth) is common with most young adults. During this type of extraction, an oral surgeon will cut into the gum line to expose the tooth, from which point the extraction is performed much in the same way as a simple tooth extraction. Prior to wisdom tooth extraction, the dental office will take a panoramic x-ray to give the dental surgeon a focused and clear view of how the wisdom teeth are situated and an indication of the difficulty of extraction.
