Bone Grafting

Dental implants must be surrounded by a certain amount of bone in order for them to be anchored firmly in place. Bone loss can occur after natural teeth are removed or can be due to disease or trauma. Bone grafting is a technique to build up missing bone in areas where it is deficient so we can successfully place dental implants. There are a number of different bone grafting materials that can be used, but quite often we will choose to use artificial bone grafting materials that help encourage the growth of new bone.

A bone graft can sometimes be carried out at the same time as a natural tooth is extracted or at the time an implant is placed. Larger bone grafts may require a small additional procedure. It is a very straightforward and highly successful procedure, and we will ensure you are completely comfortable throughout this treatment.

We hope you are doing well.

Given the unprecedented situation and the uncertainties surrounding the COVID -19, we felt it was important to reassure you that we are doing everything we can to keep our practice clean and safe for every single one of you who step inside and also for our lovely team.

We have always maintained rigorous infection control procedures and take pride that as an accredited practice, we have a clearly-defined system of measuring our compliance with regulations and guidelines, allowing us to continually improve how we operate our practice.

During the last few days, we have been closely following our professional health authority’s guidance and if you have been in recently, you would have noticed that we have implemented a few additional measures in the way we operate.

We will check on you to see if you are well before you come in. Please inform us before you come in, if you are unwell or have travelled overseas or have come in contact with anyone who tested positive or highly likely to be positive for COVID-19. We will reschedule your appointment. If you are in pain and need urgent dental treatment during this time, please contact the Base Hospital. They will triage and treat accordingly.

Steps taken at our practice

We might reschedule some non-urgent treatment in the coming days, but every effort will be made to help you in the best way possible if you are in pain or any discomfort with your teeth.

It is a constantly evolving situation and we understand that it can be stressful; we will have to stay calm but vigilant and help each other out the best we can.
