how long does a tooth extraction and bone graft take?

extraction: If you are asking how long it takes to do the procedure, assuming it is uncomplicated, then the answer is somewhere around an hour give or take a little. If you are asking about how long the healing takes then there are two answers. The gum tissue heals quickly, about two weeks and the bone filling in underneath takes about 3 - 4 months, sometimes longer.
