Dental Implants

At Apple Dental, we are committed to providing high-quality dental implants in Lane Cove to deliver excellent functional and aesthetic results.

Dental implants are the ideal solution to replace missing teeth, as they look, function, and feel natural. In addition, the implants are placed in your jawbone for structural integrity and to improve the strength of your facial structure. This helps make sure that your replacement teeth are in place no matter what you’re doing.

Dental implants in Lane Cove are made of medical-grade titanium, which works naturally with your jawbone. They serve as the foundation for other dental devices, such as crowns, bridges, and dentures. Implants are effective in preventing bone deterioration, the loss of facial muscle elasticity, and jaw joint problems because of the lack of support when you bite. Above all, filling the gaps left by your missing teeth with dental implants is the effective way to fix your broken smile and help restore your mouth’s full function.

You have a variety of options when it comes to dental implant placement. Before going through this treatment, we will complete a detailed diagnostic phase to develop the most suitable plan to place the implants in a precise and comfortable manner. Whether you are having one, or multiple dental implants, our high-quality treatment helps you regain your confidence to smile and restore your mouth’s complete function for years to come.

Bone Grafting

In some cases a missing tooth or a chronic tooth infection may have caused a bony defect; an area where bone has been dissolved. The presence of a bony defect may limit your suitability to receive a dental implant and should this occur the only available treatment alternative may be a bone grafting procedure.

A bone graft is a surgical procedure to replace missing bone with material from your own body, known as autogenous bone. We can also utilise an artificial, synthetic, or natural substitute if required. The graft will ‘fill in’ the bony defect and help your body to regrow its own lost bone.

The grafting procedure can be performed under local anaesthetic and once the bony defect is prepared the bone or substitute bone is placed into the area to replace missing bone and regenerate the growth of new bone. The bone graft may be covered over with a membrane barrier to protect the site, encourage the growth of new bone and prevent the formation of fibrous scar tissue. Over time the bony defect will be reduced as newly formed bone replaces fills in the area.
