Some bone grafts for dental implants take longer to heal than others. In this video, I cover several factors that determine how long your bone graft takes to heal. Remember that many times the bone grafts and dental implants can be done simultaneously.
- Number of walls missing
- Upper or lower jaw
- Type of bone material
- Membrane type
- Block or particulate bone
- Rebuilding height, width or both
- Concurrent gum graft
Most bone grafts are ready for dental implants 4-6 months after the surgery. Some will need 7 – 9 months.
