In brief: Beware

Iliac crest grafts as onlay grafts have limited success long-term. Before you consider this procedure get another 1 or 2 opinions.
If you are in Norristown you can have a free panorex and 3D scan and consult with a Prosthodontist or Oral Surgeon or sometimes both at By Design Dental Implant Center - right behind the Mall. Always good to get educated about procedure and options. Good Luck.

In brief: At least 6 months.

If you are taking bone graft from the hip (obviously for both quantity and autogenous nature of the graft), it tells me that you're grafting a large area or a very delicate area of your jaw.
3-7 month is the timeframe most surgeons would follow. However, larger and more delicate the recipient area, the longer i like to wait to give time for your bone to mature.
