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
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.
