In brief: 4 months or more

Complete bone healing after a graft requires bone cell migration, attachment, differentiation, proliferation, and maturation as the graft resorps.
These stages would take places at least 4 months or more prior to loading (functioning). The time for the complete healing depends on the extent of the defect, the type of graft, the absence of infection and the complete coverage of graft.

In brief: Bone graft

About 3 months.
If you have not had a dental implant placed yet, one can placed at 3-4 months.

In brief: Healing

Bone graft done as a socket preservations after an extraction is toatly different than when you add bone to expend the ridge for example, the average healing time is 14-21 days, no implant for at least three months.
