    I want to get the all on four implants done. I have been told my lower jaw is ok and I have plenty of bone. I was told my upper jaw doesn’t have enough bone and I would first need to have a bone graft. I was then told I would obviously have to wait for the bone graft to heal. I forgot to ask how long the healing process would take.

    Can anybody tell me how many weeks or months would it take for the bone graft in my upper jaw to heal?

    You should be asking the surgeon. Everyone's different, and the fact you need a bone graft for upper jaw is a concern. Did they give you full explanations of risks and likelihood of success rates?
