Typically 4-6 months depending on how much grafting was needed. Should be followed up with the doctor who did the graft.
It depends on the type of your bone and the location. It usually takes from 3 to 6 months after the first stage of placing the implant.
Typically 4 months.
Waiting is usually from 3 to 6 months or longer depending on the site of the implant.
Depending on where the graft was done, the materials used and the size of the graft will determine the waiting time to place the implants. The Doc who did the graft should make that determination. 3 to 6 months is average.
I would wait about 3-4 months. The bone has to grow and form so it can accept an implant. 
U should discuss with the dentist who did the bone graft as it depends on lot of factors like the quality of existing bone and the extent of the bone graft .Thanks
12 weeks or more.
