Decayed Tooth

I got root canal done for a tooth. Since I did not get a crown placed, filling got out and the tooth decayed, leaving behind just the outer shell and the root-canal'd roots. Is it advisable to get extraction and implant done at once or there should be a time gap between the two?

Hi , Implant can be done immediately but the final call needs to be taken by the surgeon placing it as to its the bone condition good to accept the implant or does it need to heal first.
