Dental implants can take 9 months. During this time some other crown or root canal problem happens. Not good. Why so long for bone graft to get solid?

In brief: Bone grafts

It is what it is.
Bone integration takes the body 4-6 months at least for enough integration to minimize chance of failure. Bone grafting around implant takes less but sufficient time needed. Other conditions such as irreversible inflammation of nerve of tooth, decay just don't take as long. Other procedures such as RCT or crowns take 1-2 visits generally. See comment below:

It takes longer for the body to heal from open heart surgery than an appendectomy which in turn takes longer than a wart removal.

In brief: Depends on each case

Normally the healing process takes only few months 2-4, but you can get dental treatment on other teeth in the meantime
