It takes anywhere from 3-8 months
It's depends on the type of the Bone ,upper or Lower Jaw and usually take from 3 to 6 Months.
Between 6-12 weeks depending on the size of the graft and the health of the patient.
There are a number of different types of bone grafting procedures. The most common ones are in extraction sockets, and those generally take 10-12 weeks. More advanced ridge augmenting grafts with cortical bone grafts take 8 months.
This can be dependent upon the type of bone grafting that was completed. However, the majority of dental bone grafts take 4-6 months to fully heal and integrate.
There are several types of bone grafts. Most materials serve as a lattice work for our own osteocytes (bone cells) to grow into. Regardless of the material it usually takes 3 months for complete bone development.
It depends on the type of graft and the amount of graft needed etc. if it’s prior to implant placement, usually 3-4 months. Please talk to your surgeon since they will know what is specific to your mouth.

It depends on the material used and the location for bone grafting. We use patient’s bone, synthetic bone, bone from cadaver or bovine. Each bone graft requires specific healing time. Therefore, the time for bone graft to heal would range from 2-6 months.

A minimal of 3 months or more.
Depends on the type of grafting procedure completed and the type of bone graft used, but 2-6 months is par for the course.
3 to 6 months depending upon where and how it is placed.
Normally it takes about 4 months but it could depend on individual as well.
Usually 3 months. It also depends on your health.
