Bone grafting usually requires 4-6 months to completely heal and fill the defect, however this can vary from patient to patient. Patients are given a prescription for oral antibiotics to take following their procedure. An antibacterial mouthwash will also be prescribed to preserve the health of the gums covering the bone graft.
On follow up, the surgeon will check on the success of the graft by taking radiographs to determine the height and width of the new bone. Once this has been verified as satisfactory, and the site of the graft is completely healed, the next stage of the dental implant procedure can begin.
